Buffalo Porchfest is a grassroots music festival that turns porches into stages for local bands and musicians for an afternoon. Buffalo Porchfest occurs biannually, every spring and fall, in the Elmwood Village in Buffalo, NY and is organized by volunteers and assisted/supported by the Elmwood Village Association. Buffalo Porchfest Spring 2015 saw more than 55 bands on over 40 porches throughout the Elmwood Village and Buffalo’s west side.
Spring 2016 Porchfest will be held on May 7th. Sign ups for porches and bands were due by Monday April 11th.
The inaugural Buffalo Porchfest took place in the fall of 2013 in the Elmwood Village, Buffalo, NY. Buffalo Porchfest is based on the original Porchfest started by organizers in Ithaca, NY (http://www.porchfest.org/) in 2007 and takes inspiration from other successful porchfests, including Somerville, MA; Belleville, ON; and Cleveland, OH.
