Porchfest 2021

2021 marks 7 years of Deering Center Porchfest. This event takes a Portland community and transforms it into a walking music venue. Porchfest is free for all ages and features so many great musical acts that everyone is sure to find something they'll enjoy. It's all happening this Sunday, September 12th!

Parade

The day starts with a parade just after noon between Elsmere and Deering Center Community Church. Wear your craziest outfit, bring noisemakers, walk, bike or rollerskate through Deering Center to set the tone for the day of fun. Following the parade is the commencement and then at 1 the musical performances begin.

Music

Each hour starting at 1 and going until 5 there are 16 acts spread out on porches and front yards throughout the Deering area.

A full overview of the day, bands, and an interactive map can be found here!

Porchfest is an incredible way to wrap up the summer and that ever so brief time of year to enjoy live music outside. So make your plans to join the Deering community this Sunday for Porchfest 2021!
