Front Porch Fest was born in Ithaca, NY in 2007 and has quickly spread throughout the nation. Brought to Evansville by Amy Word, Front Porch Fest EVV is now in its 5th year and keeps on growing! Held annually on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend in beautiful and historic Haynie's Corner Arts District, it boasts nearly fifty diverse musicians and groups from the region. Front Porch Fest EVV is free, thanks to generous community sponsors, and family friendly.
This year, Front Porch Fest EVV introduces two shifts of porch playing-- 3-5:30 and 5:30-8-- so that visitors can enjoy even MORE music! Stroll from porch to porch, or find something you love and stick to it for the entire afternoon-- the choice is yours! After the porch music, head to the fountain at the heart of Haynie's Corner for the after party featuring the Hannah Evelyn Trio and Corduroy Orbison, plus a beer garden and food trucks. Don't miss one of Evansville's most beloved festivals!
