SANDWICH PORCH FEST Sandwich Arts Alliance is hosting the fourth annual 'PorchFest' event throughout town. WHEN: Sunday, October 13, 1-4 PM Rain date is Monday Oct 14th (Columbus Day)
WHERE: Sandwich Village: Main, School, and Jarves Streets and Route 6A
This is the fourth year that The Sandwich Arts Alliance has presented PorchFest, a free event on Columbus Day weekend. It is an invitation to enjoy a pleasant afternoon strolling around Sandwich Village with family and friends while listening to a variety of musicians performing along the way. It could be blues, pop, jazz, folk, R&B, ethnic, drums or bagpipes! All genres are welcome on our 10 porches. We will have about 20 acts - singers, guitarists, and other instrumentalists for three hours of fabulous acoustic music.
Sandwich's PorchFest is in keeping with the national "PorchFest" movement, which supposedly started in 2007 in Ithaca, NY. The emphasis is on unamplified, acoustic music, and on building community.
Shops and cafes will be open during this event, and maps will be available on line, in front of Town Hall, or at various places in the Village to guide visitors along a looping route.
