An annual signature event of the West Concord Junction Cultural District Committee, the Porchfest is a gala celebration of community music held on a Saturday afternoon each September. Audience members are treated to more than two dozen musical acts representing a wide variety of styles. Concerts are held on porches, stoops, front yards, and at Harvey Wheeler Community Center, all within walking distance. Local vendors offer snacks, drinks, and more at the Harvey Wheeler Community Center parking lot.
The event is free and enjoyed by about 2,000 residents and visitors each year. It is held in collaboration with Concord Recreation. The first Porchfest was presented in 2019, with the second and third held in 2021 and 2022.
