Porchest, featuring one hundred thirty-five artists and sponsored by Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services.
Like to listen to rock music? How about folk? Or maybe some jazz? This year’s Porchfest has it all! The local music festival is celebrating it’s seventh anniversary and will be taking place on Sunday, September 15th from 1:00PM to 5:00PM on the porches of Fall Creek and Northside neighborhoods. Afterwards at 5:30 in Thompson Park, there will be a picnic and open jam. Since it's genesis in 2007 here in Ithaca, there have been Porchfests held in thirteen other cities across America. The Ithaca Porchest continues to grow, featuring music from one hundred thirty-five artists this year. Some standout acts include Alan Rose and the Restless Elements, Nate & Kate, Second Dam, Thru Spectrums, The Gunpoets, who recently played at Cornell University, and the Yardvarks, WVBR’s very own John Simon’s band.
