Free Open Air Music Festival
Wellfleet PorchFest, Saturday August 24th, is pleased to present 29 bands, over 70 musicians, on 21 local porches and properties making beautiful acoustic music along the streets of Wellfleet Center Historic District. PorchFest 2019 will host artists across all genres including classical, Celtic, bluegrass, rock, jazz, and more. The festival will run from 1:30 to 5:00 in two sets with a half hour break between sets.
The festival is proudly unplugged! Come expecting to hear great music made au naturel.
Wellfleet PorchFest was founded by local musicians as a free acoustic music festival, following the example of the original Porchfest, introduced in Ithaca, New York in 2007. From its beginnings in Ithaca, the porchfest concept has spread to cities and towns across the country and Canada including three others in Massachusetts: Somerville, Jamaica Plain, and Sandwich.
Information and maps will be available on the day of the festival at The Frying Pan Gallery on the Wellfleet pier, and in front of the AIM Thrift Shop on Main Street. Porchfest T-shirts will go on sale at The Frying Pan Gallery in mid July.
The Wellfleet Center Historic District falls within the quadrant of Main Street, Commercial Street, and Holbrook Avenue and includes 173 buildings of mid-19th century Revival, Georgian, and late Victorian architectural styles. There are 11 restaurants in or nearby the district.
