PorchFest LakeviewSunday, June 2nd from 1-5PMWithin two blocks of Southport/Lincoln/Wellington
The Lakeview Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Front Porch Concerts presents PorchFest Lakeview. PorchFest Lakeview is a community-building festival featuring local musicians performing on front porches within a few blocks of South Lakeview. Lakeview residents volunteer their porches to host the concerts, and local musicians will perform throughout the afternoon. Along with lots of great music, there will be food, craft beer from Corridor Brewery (cash only), music, and great times with the community! Bring your young kids to the event hub from 2-4pm to play music with The Music Playhouse of Chicago!
Restrooms will be located at Diag Bar & Grill (2856 N. Southport Ave) and available from 1-5PM.
HOST: Hosting is a great way to meet your neighbors and enjoy a wonderful afternoon of live music from talented local musicians right on your own front porch! By hosting, you're helping to make Lakeview a stronger, more tight-knit community and supporting the local music scene. Hosts must be within Racine to Ashland and Fletcher to Wolfram. Sign up for 2020 here.
PLAY: Perform at this wonderful event where you will be welcomed onto a Lakeview resident's front porch to share your music with the community! You are sure to meet new fans and create special memories as you perform in this intimate, unique setting. ARTIST SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED, but you can still sign up to be considered for next year: sign up here.
VOLUNTEER: Volunteers are needed to help with event setup, managing artist performances on various porches, assisting with activities, and welcoming the Lakeview community to the event. If you are interested in volunteering at the event or if you have any questions, email Carisa@LakeviewChamber.com.
