Porch Host Registration

Host a Show on Your Porch!

Throw a party with live music! And please don’t take “porch” too literally. Anything that faces the street and allows the audience to listen from your property (i.e., not on the street) will be great.

As a Porchfest host:

  • You agree to host your designated band(s) on your Arlington porch, Saturday afternoon, June 8, 2019. You may also indicate if you’re available to host on the Sunday June 9 rain date if needed.
  • New for 2019! You can optionally host a visual arts exhibit along with your band(s).
    • The exhibit should be outdoors in parallel with your performance(s) in a way that allows the public to enjoy the sights and sounds together.
    • We ask visual artists to provide the tables, easels, etc., needed to present their work. As an exhibit host, you would simply provide adequate space.

Porch host responsibilities include:

  • Having the permission of the homeowner (if it’s not you)
  • Inviting everyone you know to drop on by
  • Assisting performers and artists with setup
  • Remaining available for the duration of your host time
  • Ensuring participants stay on lawns/driveways and out of the street
  • And, most importantly, notifying your neighbors of your participation in the event.

The registration deadline is May 10, 2019.
