The idea behind a Porchfest is simple. Houses with porches act as temporary venues for the day. Ithaca, New York, had their first Porchfest in 2007 and the success of that event inspired other areas, around New York and across the country, to host their own versions of Porchfest.
Trumansburg, New York, hosted their first Porchfest on Saturday, June 17. Our Outreach Coordinator, Elena Piech, spoke to artists and event attendees about the festival. This package originally aired on WRFI Community Radio.
