Larchmere is a front porch community. These outdoor rooms are a part of the neighborhood's fabric. They are a place to visit with neighbors, or simply to cool off in the summer.

"Larchmere PorchFest" is a new, grassroots event that will celebrate the porches in our community by bringing neighbors and visitors together for great musical entertainment.

"This is Cleveland's newest, coolest event and it's happening in Larchmere," says Katharyne Starinsky, event co-chair. "Porchfest will bring new people to the neighborhood that are not familiar with the residential areas."

This is a one-day event will feature some of the top regional musicians performing acoustic music on front porches throughout the neighborhood. The idea, spearheaded by Larchmere neighbors, was inspired by a similar event that takes place annually in the Fallcreek neighborhood of Ithaca, NY.

Larchmere Porchfest is scheduled for Saturday, June 20th from 2- 6 pm. Twenty bands and musicians that will perform on different front porches throughout the community. It will conclude with a full band, plugged-in concert at Shaker Square from 6-9 pm. The event is free.

Sponsors include the Coral Company, Metheny Weir, the Dancing Sheep, Vine & Bean, Martel Salon, Boulevard Blue, Neighborhood Connections, Cleveland Colectivo, Felice, Studio Graphique, Messy Magazine, the Grog Shop, and the Academy Tavern.
