ENCORE! Mt. Morris brought a New Annual Festival to the Community in 2017.

Our First Porchfest was Saturday, June 10
th, 2017 19 Groups and Solo Musicians played on an incredible day in Mt. Morris. Our calendars are reserved for each second Saturday in June for years to come.

PorchFest is a community music festival where all genres' of musicians perform in one hour slots on porches within the boundaries of the event. The audience moves from location to location as the event progresses.

Porchfest began in Ithica New York in 2007, inspired by some outdoor ukulele playing and a conversation between neighbors Gretchen Hildreth and Lesley Greene. They came up with the idea for it that day and gathered 20 bands to make it happen

Porchfest is the ultimate grassroots music festival and has grown not just in Ithaca but around the continent. Communities and neighborhoods all around the country have taken the model and run with it. There are more than 60 other known Porchfests in the U.S. and Canada and Mt. Morris, IL has joined the list.
