Scranton PorchFest is a city-wide event centered on community, Scranton PA's diverse cultural history, and a joyful celebration that anyone with a porch (or storefront, or yard, or garden or fence) can join in! This festival is a special project by SCRANTON FRINGE., made possible by incredible support from the SCRANTON AREA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION.
Porch-Fest will take place Saturday, March 19th thru Saturday. March 26th, 2022 throughout the city of Scranton PA.
Transform the front of your home or business, (safely) explore neighborhoods across the city, and take part in pop-up performances & other special events!
HOW CAN I TAKE PART?
There are two fantastic ways to take part -- either host small, COVID safe live performances (acoustic music, storytelling, poetry, etc) from your porch AND/OR transform your homes (or storefronts, yards, fences, etc.) into HOUSE FLOATS. If you were creating your ideal parade float, how would it look? How creative can you be? Take that concept - and transform your porch/storefront into this float - and we will help promote it!
If you need inspiration or would just like to see some of the brilliant work the community created in 2021 - click here!
While we will be striving to help where we can, helping promote the entire event, and striving to connect artists/creatives to paid work- ultimately, every home/business owner is 100% responsible for their own design, 100% responsible for any financial arrangement to artists/creatives they hire & 100% due all the creative credit!
