Apalachicola’s grassroots roaming music festival – where porches are stages, yards are venues, and good vibes rule the day!
Porch Fest Apalach was created in 2020 as a way to share a diversity of music from our area and beyond, and pair it with the unique historic homes and neighborhoods of Apalachicola. Porch Festivals happen all over the world, and now there is one right here in our town.
Porch Fest Apalach is on Saturday, October 22, 2022. It begins at Lafayette Park at 11 a.m. and wraps up with a showcase finale that ends at 7 p.m. Plenty of time to go out and enjoy the Apalach nightlife, where some of the bands will perform that evening at local venues. Maps and full schedule to be released soon on the website and facebook page.
The genres we have to share this year are quite diverse, including surf, Irish, singer-songwriter, vintage rock, jazz standards, sad songs, happy songs, singing bowls, pirate music, bluegrass inspired, duos, singles and big bands. We pretty much got it all covered, folks!!
We encourage folks to bring chairs, blankets, bicycles, wagons, picnics, cash (for tipping, donations, food, drink), hats and sunscreen. There will be food trucks at Lafayette Park and other locations.
25 bands, 13 porches, plus 3 stages, all outdoors!
