Welcome to Arlington Porchfest (Home Stretch)

Arlington’s favorite grassroots community music festival starts at 12pm on Saturday June 18th !

250+ Porches, Band, and Artists returning to your neighborhood this year!


Musicians of all stripes will be the stars as they perform on Arlington’s lawns, porches, and stoops in a day of festivity and merriment. Our town-wide festival will be moving from west to east, from noon til 6pm. Listen to live music from Americana to Zydeco, watch creative dance performances, and view the work of resident artists on front porches throughout our neighborhoods.

If you have a porch in Arlington and a band all lined up, it’s not too late to participate.  Sign up your porch and your band(s) here! 

This year the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture will be hosting an after party at Arlington Service Station at 334 Mass Ave! Join them at 6pm for GARAGE BAND – a dance party and performance by the Squeezebox Stompers!

Please help us count Porchfest attendance! With 100+ venues we need lots of help estimating the crowds. If you’re reading this on a smartphone, you can send us a quick headcount with a simple click. Under every porch, band, and exhibit listing is an email link: “Click & email attendance estimate!” Just click that link and then add your attendance estimate to the email that automatically pops up. Hit send and you’re done. Thanks!
