Can bands from outside of Quincy perform at PorchFest Quincy?
Absolutely! Bands from all over performed at PorchFest Quincy last year and we encourage everyone to join us.
Sounds great! Do I need to buy a ticket to PorchFest Quincy?
No, PorchFest is free. Simply go to this website a few days before the event to learn about performance locations and times. We encourage you to walk and use public transportation as parking may be limited.
Eating and drinking?
Feel free to bring your own food and beverages. Just remember that each venue is someone's home, so please be sure to clean up after yourself.
We plan to have three beer gardens this year and potentially some food trucks - stay tuned!
Beer and Wine?
We are planning for a few beer garden's this year - locations TBD. PorchFest does not have an officially contained festival area. The entire event takes place in individually owned yards and the public streets in between. When in public, you are subject to the usual laws regarding alcohol consumption.
Are dogs allowed?
Different homeowners will likely have different preferences when it comes to dogs on their priority. So please be aware of and sensitive to that. On the streets, the rules are the same as they'd be any other time.
Is there a hashtag? Social Media?
Please post your photos and videos using this hashtag: #porchfestquincy
Will there be bathrooms?
We are arranging for a few Porta-Potties. PorchFest locations are neighbors homes, and they will not provide any facilities.
Is there a rain date?
There is no rain date. We are from New England.
Are you closing the streets during this festival?
No. If you must drive near the PorchFest performance locations, please use caution and drive slowly. Any neighborhood who would like to apply for a permit to close streets during PorchFest may, of course, do so on their own.
