Buffalo Porchfest is a grassroots music festival that turns porches into stages for local bands and musicians for an afternoon! Buffalo Porchfest occurs every spring in the Elmwood Village in Buffalo, NY. The event is organized by volunteers and supported by the Elmwood Village Association.

The inaugural Buffalo Porchfest took place in the fall of 2013 in the Elmwood Village. Buffalo Porchfest is based on the original Porchfest started by organizers in Ithaca, NY ( in 2007 and takes inspiration from other successful porchfests, including Somerville, MA; Belleville, ON; and Cleveland, OH.
