SE PorchFest

May 20, 2018 @ 1:00 PM – 6:00 PM

Penn Branch resident and SE Porchfest volunteer organizer, Ayanna Smith announced today the first Porchfest to be held East of the Anacostia River, Sunday, May 20, 2018, from 1pm-6pm in Penn Branch. Porchfests are mini-concerts on front porches. Local Business Improvement Districts (BIDS) in other DC neighborhoods have hosted annual Porchfests, including Adams Morgan and Rhode Island Avenue. However, there has not been a music festival of its kind East of the River.

“Penn Branch and Hillcrest have beautiful stately homes with front yards and large porches, mixed with a rich history and tons of hidden talent,” said Porchfest organizer, Ayanna Smith. “We have all of the elements of a perfect Porchfest. It is also a great way for undiscovered talent to garner visibility.”

The goal is to have six-to-eight bands perform three-to-five songs each, throughout the day.

Other DC Porchfests have been supported by local BIDS, however, the SE Porchfest is being organized by volunteers, solely.  For more information, email Updates can be found on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @porchfestdc.
