Contribute to the venues that will bring Porchfest to life! And when we're talking porch, we're not exactly literalists here. Porches are great, of course, but so are stoops or yards or driveways. Anything residential in character and allowing for a street-facing performance pretty much fits the bill.

A simple process:


  • Clear your schedule on October 12 between Noon and 6pm (why?); 

  • Fill out the registration form below; 

  • Get assigned to host during just one (why?) of our six, hour-long slots, leaving you five other hours to wander, mingle, and celebrate music.

Host requirements: 


-Generosity, hospitality, and good will.


-Confirm you live within the festival boundaries (click here for the map).

-Watch your email for notifications and connect with your performer in short order after receiving your assignment (assignments expected late September).


-Be available for the duration of your slot, help as necessary, ensure appropriate volumes, and keep the performance to its assigned time.

-Serve as an all around person in charge, maintain general order in and around your yard, and assume responsibility for whatever occurs on your own property.

-See a problem, solve a problem. In your yard or on the street. If it's too big, get some assistance from your Block Captains or from fellow Porchfesters. If it's still too big, call the police.

-Put out a trash can and recycle bin for your guests.


-Get the word out to your neighbors and everyone you know to drop on by.




Porchfest host registration is now closed.


If you registered, you should’ve received a confirmation email immediately thereafter (if you didn't, check your spam folder). Now stay tuned for your schedule assignment, which will be emailed to you and your performer the week of September 15.

Thanks for being a great neighbor and for making the Oakhurst Porchfest the largest commercial free neighborhood music spectacle in the southeast. We couldn't do it without you.
