Registration is open. The deadline to sign up is May 31, 2019. We intend to pair hosts and acts by June 30.
If you would like to host an act:
Please fill out this form. Note that West Concord Porchfest is not just about porches – you can host a performance in your yard, driveway, garage, or front stoop! The form allows you to select multiple options to give us maximum flexibility as we pair acts and homes.
For our first porchfest, we’ve restricted the location of the festival to the area of West Concord in the map at right (click to enlarge). This will allow visitors to park in the Village near restaurants and shops, and access to public restrooms. We hope to include more neighborhoods in future years.
If you would like to perform:
Please fill out this form. We welcome all acts, from classic rock to metal, singer-songwriters to jazz combos, plus poets, story tellers and more!
We welcome you to accept tips or pass the hat. You may also sell merchandise and publicize upcoming shows. However, we ask that you recruit a friend to oversee sales, and bring cash for making change and/or a credit card swiper. Please also provide your own equipment, amplifiers, extension cords and snacks (though your host will probably be eager to shower you with food and drink).
If you would like to volunteer, either before the event or during the event, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Projects include matchmaking between hosts and acts, creating and distributing lawn signs, publicizing the event, and more. On the day of the event, we’d love to have help making sure everything runs smoothly.
