Usually, DC has to wait until October, but for the first time ever, a Spring PorchFest is coming. The Adams Morgan Partnership Business Improvement District (BID) recently announced the inaugural Spring PorchFest to take place on Saturday, May 20 from 2-6pm.
This is not a replacement, but rather an additional PorchFest, featuring over 70+ bands including some of DC’s best local musical talent from nearly every musical genre. Seventeen porches, patios, and stoops are set to become stages for the day, drawing music-lovers from around the region into the tree-lined streets and small businesses of Adams Morgan.
Each PorchFest location will host up to four 45-minute sets, all of which are free and open for all to enjoy, and a main stage will feature various headliners: Gordon Sterling and The People, Fanfaire, Bryan Lee Music, and The Experience Band and Show. The full lineup of performers can be found here.
Event patrons can pick up a music map and wristband at the event headquarters located in the plaza at the corner of Columbia and Adams Mill Roads NW. Event wristbands are FREE and provide attendees with dozens of discounts at various Adams Morgan businesses.
