Something exciting is in the works at Westhaven! Mark your calendars now for Porchfest 2014, happening on Saturday, June 21st.  Starting at 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM, neighborhood porches throughout the neighborhood will host a variety of musicians.  Lightning 100 will be broadcasting LIVE from Town Center from 4:00 PM until 6:00 PM and the evening will wrap up with a concert on the lake, starting at 8:00 PM.  See you on the porch!

By most accounts, Porchfest has its roots in Ithaca, New York, where residents of the Fall Creek neighborhood realized that they had an abundance of musicians and front porches. Gretchen Hildreth and Lesley Greene started the festival as a way for their neighbors to showcase their musical talents on ready-made “stages.” The concept is very simple – find musicians to play, and find porches for them to play on. The event started small, with about 20 participating musicians and host homes. There was, and still is, no money involved, and very little organization is required. Bands, singers and instrumentalists from a wide variety musical genres participate in the festival for no other reason than to showcase their talents and engage the community. Residents volunteer their porches as a way to support the local music scene and interact with their neighbors.

Westhaven’s Porchfest is very similar. The selection committee will approve musicians and help match them up with volunteered porches. A schedule of assigned timeslots and a map of participating homes will allow visitors to customize their Porchfest experience.

One exciting difference between the original Porchfest concept and Westhaven’s event is the addition of an evening concert to wrap up an afternoon of music. After wandering around the neighborhood enjoying intimate performances on porches, the day will end with a lakefront concert.

Westhaven’s Porchfest is an annual event that enjoyed great success in its first year. We hope to continue the success with this year’s event and that friends and neighbors both in and out of Westhaven plan to spend a music-filled day in our beautiful neighborhood!
