Porchfest NDG is back!
Inspired by a grassroots concept that began in Ithaca, New York in 2007, Porchfest NDG is back for another year. This year's edition of Porchfest NDG will run May 19 and 20, 2018 and will feature local Montreal musicians playing on porches and front lawns across the West End Montreal borough of NDG.
As organizers have mentioned, "this grassroots community event is completely free—all you need is a good pair of walking shoes".
Musicians will be able to register to be a part of Porchfest starting Friday, March 16 at porchfestndg.com. It is not necessary to be a resident of NDG to participate however it is necessary to secure a location to play within the borough limits.
