Please note that Barnett Ave will be closed to traffic from 8 am to 8 pm on the day of Porchfest.

Porchfest will bring heavy traffic to the Virginia Highland area. As parking will be difficult, we encourage walking, biking, and ride-sharing. Ideal ride share drop-off locations include Inman Middle School, YWCA, or CVS off N. Highland Ave.

The event will include a first-aid booth, hand sanitizer stations, and public restrooms. Because of the size of the event, we ask that you leave your cute pets at home.

Scope the fun from past Porchfests! Peruse our favorite photos from last year and 2021. 

Whether you want to support your community or need volunteer hours for high school, this event thrives off of the help of local volunteers.

Sign up to set up, break down, station at information booths, and help Porchfest goers find their way to their favorite band or porch.
