Lambertville Porchfest is a do-it-yourself music festival, featuring musicians of all kinds playing free shows on porches throughout the neighborhood. Created by and for Lambertville residents, the festival seeks to represent and celebrate the community’s broad musical talents and picturesque neighborhoods.
To build, deepen and celebrate connections within our community by creating a platform for sharing the joys of live music.
The first Porchfest was held in Ithaca, NY in 2007. Since then, Porchfests have sprung up in over 100 other US and Canadian cities, including San Francisco, Cleveland, Tucson, Philadelphia, Montréal and Ottawa.
This is the second Lambertville Porchfest, so it's up to us to make history happen again! We have no doubt that it will bring neighbors together, give local artists a platform to share their music, and help support Lambertville's downtown restaurants and businesses -- all while being mindful of safety guidelines necessary to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Each year a local artist contributes an annual Porchfest design. Our artwork this year was created by Bennett Kjenstad, featuring Lambertville's Victorian architecture via an animated spin around town. You can support Bennett and get yourself some great Lambertville Porchfest 2022 hand-pulled screen prints for just $10 at Young Bennett (56 Coryell St.) on October 1st. Bring an item to print on, or purchase one there! 👕
