PorchFest is an afternoon of free music performed outside of people’s homes. Over 100 cities across the country hold PorchFests. Now Newton is holding one too, starting in Auburndale, with hopes the event spreads to include more Newton villages next year.

This is an all-ages event!
Over 60 musical acts (dancers and storytellers too) are scheduled to perform. There’ll be a diverse line up of local talent from country to pop, classical, reggae, blues, rock, jazz, Latin, R&B, and more.
Bring a chair or a blanket and appreciate music performed on a unique venue, the front porch, (driveways and lawns too!) Parking is available on the Comm. Ave carriage lane, the municipal lot behind The Village Bank, the lot at the Cove, and around Lasell College. Please be mindful of the narrow streets; strolling is the name of the game.
June 2nd, 12:00 noon – 4:00 pm
Auburndale PorchFest is affiliated with the Newton Community Pride and pleased to be part of Newton Festival of the Arts, Spring 2018. Printed versions of Newton’s PorchFest Official Schedule & Map will be available around town in early May.
