What is Porchfest???  Porchfests are annual music events held across the U.S. and Canada on front porches.  Begun in the Fall Creek area of Ithaca, NY in 2007, Porchfest events bring local musicians and neighborhoods together to celebrate and create a sense of community.  The original event in Ithaca started with about 20 musicians but has since grown to over 150.  Bands, singers, and instrumentalists participate in the festival for no other reason than to showcase their talents and engage the community.  Local residents volunteer their porches as a way to support the local music scene and interact with their neighbors.  Maps and schedules are usually posted online or in local media.  Because these are neighborhood events, people walk, ride bikes or scooters, drive golf carts, or push strollers as they move from one porch to another along a determined route to partake in the festivities.  Vendors often provide food along the route.
