Tune Up Your Guitar – Dallas Porchfest is Almost Here


If you’re looking for something fun to do in Dallas, put this on your calendar! Dallas PorchFest is a festival celebrating music, the arts, and food on the front porches and yards of the beautiful homes located in the Peak’s Addition neighborhood; It’s a day marked to bring together the greater Dallas community, in support of local musicians, artists, and cuisine, while raising money to improve and beautify the neighborhood (sidewalk repairs, tree plantings, etc.).

Peak’s Addition, roughly bounded by Live Oak, Peak, Worth and N. Fitzhugh streets, was founded in 1855. It is East Dallas’ oldest residential neighborhood and is known for its architectural diversity and meticulous restorations. Victorian, Craftsman, Prairie, Classical Revival and Queen Anne homes line the streets.

Local performers include; The Ackermans, DPD Choir, Gringo Soul, Camden Lee, Dave Washburn & Three Quarters Fast, Hightower and more!

The idea for PorchFest was conceived in Ithaca, NY in 2007. In its short life, PorchFest has become a grassroots movement sweeping across the nation in neighborhoods from coast-to-coast. PorchFest is a pleasant personal reminder, to those who experience its simple joy, of Time’s Past – when neighbors would greet one another and interact on/from their porches (one might say porches were the “social media” of the past).

Dallas PorchFest is free to attend. However, donations are welcome. Any proceeds generated will be used to cover the event expenses. Additional funds will be allocated to park programs, neighborhood beautification, and community programming.
