Porchfest originally started in Ithaca, NY in 2007 and has spread to hundreds of towns across North America.
Arlington Porchfest was established in January 2016 when Bruce Hoppe met Linda Shoemaker of the Arlington Center for the Arts (ACA). A natural partnership was born. After a successful (if damp) first go in June 2016, ACA is producing the second Arlington Porchfest for June 3, 2017.
ACA has provided art classes, camps, gallery and studio space – as well as dynamic leadership – to artists and art lovers of all ages, in and around Arlington. ACA will be moving from its home in the Gibbs School to a new space in the town center in the next year. Look for more Porchfest events produced by the new ACA!
