About the event

Petworth PorchFest is a volunteer-led annual event spearheaded by a passionate group of Petworth residents. Inspired by other PorchFests throughout DC and eager to connect with their community after a global pandemic, they created Petworth PorchFest in the spring of 2021.

The event brings together community by offering Petworth residents an opportunity to host local bands on their porch, where residents and visitors can enjoy live music together. The aim of the event is to encourage the gathering of community, support local artists and businesses, and inspire people through the art of music.

Porchfest was originally founded in Ithaca, NY in September 2007 by neighbors Gretchen Hildreth and Lesley Greene. Over the years, the concept of hosting performances on front porches has grown, with communities around the U.S., organizing Porchfests of all sizes. In DC, Porchfest was first hosted in the Takoma Park neighborhood and later celebrated by Adams Morgan, Rhode Island Avenue, and Southeast. In some instances, Porchfests are sponsored by community main streets & housing development organizations and in other cases, neighbors collaborate to plan and coordinate the events.
