The Front Porch Music Festival is a neighborhood celebration of music-making. Inspired by the Water Hill Music Fest in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Longfellow neighbors organized the first Front Porch Music Festival in 2015. The 2015 festival included musicians of all ages (5–85) and experience (from novice to professional), performing in a wide range of musical styles and traditions, including jazz, classical, folk, and rock.

Performers are invited to play music on front porches or yards in the Longfellow neighborhood. Spectators are invited to walk, listen, and join in an open jam (UPDATE: Due to COVID safety precautions, an open jam will not be held in 2021).

For more information, or to schedule a performance or share a porch, please email: info@frontporchmusicfestival.com.

The Longfellow Front Porch Music Festival is organized by the Diane and Nathan Platte Family (Grant Street), Sara and Trevor Harvey Family (Center Avenue), and Kajsa Dalrymple and Jeff Kritzman Family (Clark Street).
