Napa Porchfest In the News
From the Napa Valley Register July 2018
For the eighth consecutive summer, dozens of bands and soloists took over porches and lawns Sunday afternoon for Napa Porchfest, delivering an array of performances seemingly as varied as ever despite a schedule cut down by 90 minutes from previous years. Organizers of the nonprofit musical crawl, which played out mainly in the Old Town neighborhood near Fuller Park, said attendance likely reached 15,000 – nearly the same level as at the six-hour extravaganzas of the past two years.

As listed on KQED in their Hot Days and Summer Nights Guide 2018: The idea is so perfect, it's surprising no one thought of it sooner. At Porchfest, bands don't go on tour... the fans do. On bikes, that is. Or skateboards, wagons, Big Wheels, by feet — however one chooses to hop from front porch to front porch, upon which local bands perform at houses all over town. Performers are not confirmed at press time, but it historically includes Napa musicians of mostly acoustic styles, like folk, jazz and country. Napa's old Victorians provide picturesque backdrops, there's an element of voyeurism in staring into people's yards, and you can come and go as you please depending on the band. A fun, free way to see the town.
