MIDTOWN #KC || KANSAS CITY, MO
PorchFestKC is a community music celebration featuring 150'ish amazing, talented, regional bands of all ages, performing on the front porches of Kansas City's beautiful Midtown homes.
We skipped 2020 for all the obvious reasons, and unfortunately are skipping 2021 as well. Seed funding for PorchFestKC has historically come from the City's Neighborhood Tourism Development Fund (NTDF) - that money comes from hotel taxes. The pandemic's impact on hotels was clear, resulting in NTDF not offering grants in 2021. Frankly, it was still unclear where live events might stand for the fall when normal efforts begin for this event -- early in the year. So. No PorchFestKC #6 in 2021, unfortunately.
