"At PorchFest, you feel part of the crowd because people are sharing their homes and front porches with you. Even though you’re not going inside the house, it makes you feel like part of a giant neighborhood family."
The family-friendly, free event will feature more than 20 musicians or groups, representing many genres, from Jacksonville and across the Southeastern U.S. Visitors are invited to stroll the sidewalks of Springfield and listen to the bands and “camp out” with a picnic blanket or chair on the front lawn as they listen. Be sure to visit the numerous art, food, and drink vendors to keep you going throughout the day. While you’re at it, just soak up the energy.
