Some common questions include...

Do I need a ticket?

No, you silly goose. The shows are free. Some musicians will put out a tip jar and you can show them some love, if you feel so inclined.

I have a band! How do I play?

Hey! Cool! Check out the info page for musicians and then get in touch--we have a few spots left for 2019.

I want to help! What do you need?

A community event like Porchfest runs on volunteers. And you get to hear great music all day while helping your community enjoy a fun event! The basic roles for volunteers are to help people find their way around Porchfest and to contact the Porchfest organizing committee if something's not working at a porch (like a microphone isn't working or something). Pretty easy stuff, and lots of fun. If you'd like to volunteer, please contact us at melroseporchfest@gmail.com and thank you!!
