Organizers are getting ready for the upcoming Porchfest NDG - a community musical event where musicians jam on porches, stoops and patios throughout the neighbourhood for two days. 

Online registration for musicians kicked off on March 19, 2017 for the third annual installment of Porchfest. This year’s event is slated to take place on May 20 and 21.

The Westhaven-Elmhurst Community Association will benefit from this year’s event. The association offers free programs, including music workshops and a recording studio, for teens and young adults in NDG. 

According to Porchfest NDG’s website, “All the donations collected during the 2017 edition of Porchfest NDG will go towards improving music education resources available to NDG youth through Westhaven’s inclusive and accessible music program.”

Musicians must first find a porch to perform on before registering through Porchfest NDG’s website. The musician schedules will vary as organizers work to disperse shows throughout NDG, but make it easy for people to hop from one porch-based performance to the next.
