Highland Park’s Porchfest Sunday, May 19th, 12 noon to 6 p.m, is known to be one of the best community music events in the state

Highland Park’s Porchfest returns this Sunday, May 19th from 12pm to 6pm, rain or shine. 

Porchfests are free, co-operative community events run by the town’s musicians and residents, akin to big music festivals but with small town appeal. 

This year’s event features over 60 performances across 22 porches.

Some porches will host one performance, while others will have back-to-back, 45-minute sets by various artists for the duration of the event. 

“There’s all styles of music, which is really great,” said event co-organizer and Highland Park resident Gary Kaplan. 

The full schedule lists funk, bluegrass, jazz, punk, alternative and rock bands, plus duets and solo acoustic artists, rap, techno and ethereal music, and even a musical about space cops.
