5th Annual Longfellow Front Porch Music Festival
Saturday June 8, 2019
2:00 – 5:30 p.m.
Performers of any ability—from amateur to professional—hailing from the Longfellow neighborhood (broadly defined) are invited to participate in this celebration of music in our community. Musicians will play on the front porches or yards of homes on the following streets: Clark, Oakland, Grant, Rundell, Sheridan, and Center. Spectators are welcome to stroll the neighborhood to listen and enjoy the music, or join in an Open Jam session or community sing.
We encourage all who are able to walk or bike around the neighborhood during the festival. For visitors driving to the Longfellow neighborhood for the festival, please park in the Longfellow Elementary School Parking lot (1130 Seymour Ave) or on the perimeter of the festival area to reduce vehicle traffic during the festival.
To volunteer to perform, share a porch, or ask a question, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
