We're going to need to wait! Unfortunately, Kansas City, like too much of the US, is not getting ahead of COVID. We will regroup in 2021 with hopes of a safer environment. Until then, I wish everyone great health, a comfortable mask, unlimited kindness - and a short line at the voting booth. We will see you all in 2021, healthy, happy, full of community spirit, with a portable chair in hand, ready to hear (and perform) terrific music!

PorchFestKC is a community music celebration featuring 150'ish amazing, talented, regional bands of all ages, performing on the front porches of beautiful Midtown homes. For our 6th year, we anticipate returning to the same three beautiful, diverse neighborhoods as 2019: Roanoke, Union Hill, and Longfellow. (Roanoke will be our first three'pete neighborhood!) Music will also be in the historic Union Cemetery. Join us for one afternoon of free, family-friendly, community-focused Kansas City greatness!

2021 Applications open June 1st! What you should know is that we will be putting music on porches across 3 neighborhoods this year, and it each neighborhood will feature a wide variety of music. Please plan accordingly!
