WASHINGTON, DC, September 23, 2022 — Adams Morgan PorchFest returns on Saturday, October 1 with approximately 70 local bands! Seventeen porches, patios, and stoops will become stages for the day, drawing music-lovers from around the region into the tree-lined streets and small businesses of Adams Morgan. With more porch hosts, bands, and performances than ever before, this is sure to be the best Adams Morgan PorchFest since we started 10 years ago.
Event patrons can pick up a music map and wristband at the event headquarters located in the plaza at the corner of Columbia and Adams Mill Roads NW. Event wristbands are FREE and provide attendees with dozens of discounts at various Adams Morgan businesses. After stopping by the event headquarters, guests can stroll through the neighborhood for nonstop musical performances from 2-6pm, enjoy lunch, dinner or drinks at a neighborhood hangout, and shop for unique gifts at local boutiques.
Performances include nearly every musical genre, including classic rock, funk, go-go, rap, reggae, blue grass, classical, and pop. Each PorchFest location will host up to four 45-minute sets, all of which are free and open for all to enjoy. The main stage will feature various headliners to include Bryce Bowyn, Ari Voxx, Brian Lee, and the Airport 77s. The full lineup of performers is available at AdMoPorchFest.com!
