July 24 – Porchfest

Main Street / Rt 23 Stamford, NY
Saturday July 24, 2021

Porchfest is a bunch of great musicians on porches, sharing their music with the community – all at the same time! Grab your picnic blanket or lawn chairs, walk from place to place and enjoy all types of music. Music will be located along Main Street / Route 23 in Stamford from C.O.R.E. to the Stamford Gables B&B. It’s laid back, it’s free and it’s a good time! Check out the line-up below.

Since 2007, Porchfests have been hosted by communities all over North America. The tradition began here in New York out in Ithaca. Since then many towns around the state have held their own Porchfests… Buffalo, Rochester, Rhinebeck, Binghamton just to name a few! There are hundreds around the U.S. and Canada. The event was created to bring local musicians and neighbors together for a day of musical community celebration. There are no tickets, no reserved seating – just folks walking and plopping down on lawns to hear great music!
