August 24, 2018 GMT

BRIDGEPORT — Jam out in Black Rock on Saturday at the third annual PorchFest.

The free, family-friendly event will happen on different porches throughout Black Rock. The first bands will play at 1 p.m. and the final band will start to play around 7 p.m.

The yearly PorchFest brings out hundreds of community members every year, with listeners bouncing from porch to porch, coolers in tow, listening to the musicians.

A full list of bands and musicians scheduled to play and the locations can be found at facebook.com/brporchfest/.

Each year, prior to PorchFest, the organizers arrange a Porch Decorating Contest. This year’s theme is soundtracks from movies and television shows.


PorchFest began in 2007 in Ithaca, New York. In 2017, over 100 PorchFest events were reported to have happened.

The last Saturday in August is recognized as Play Music on the Porch Day internationally, coinciding with the Black Rock PorchFest.
