SF Porchfest Takes on Year 5

We are excited to announce that on Saturday, June 10th, from 12-6 pm, SF Porchfest will return to San Francisco’s Mission District for a fifth year. An afternoon of music on the porches, parklets, and stoops of the Mission, SF Porchfest can be summed up with the tagline: ALL GENRES, ALL AGES, ALL FREE.

Founded in 2015, our goal has always been to bring the community together for an afternoon of music and fun – no hidden agenda. Porchfest is a day to feel good about our city and our neighbors, to celebrate the creativity and rich diversity of the city we all love. It’s a day to talk with people you don’t yet know. Everyone is welcome to participate, whether as performing artists, visual artists (new this year!), porch hosts, volunteers, or members of a roving audience. We hope that SF Porchfest can continue to be a catalyst for community-building going forward.

Porchfest has happened in many cities and towns across America, originating in 2007 in Ithaca, NY. SF Porchfest was held in 2015, 2016, and 2017, eventually hosting more than 100 bands on 28 porches! We took a break and then Covid happened. As the world began to open up, we brought back a much smaller version in October 2022. The smaller size and close proximity of the venues allowed for a more navigable event with enthusiastic (but very manageable) crowds for each act. Musicians and venues were happy with turnout, full tip jars, and brisk business.

This year, we are happy to host some familiar faces with bands like Gen 11, Acoustic Nostalgia, and The Wronglers, while also leaning into the city’s youth with groups like Los Jefes, P Town Blues, and Seldon the Band. With 7 venues and 25 bands, SF Porchfest year 5 is ready for you. So bring your bikes, scooters, and dancing feet to the streets for a beautiful day of live music! There is a cultural richness and joy in music, and it brings people together. That’s what Porchfest is all about. We are hoping you’ll get out, enjoy some live music and meet your neighbors on June 10th. Don’t forget to join us on Friday June 9th, 6-9pm, for our Kick Off party at Amado’s, and at Ivory & Vine, 7 pm-late on Saturday for an After Party to celebrate the day!

See you on the Porch!
