Presented by Theatre Collingwood, the festival features 39 live performances from 25 artists on 13 different porches across Collingwood.
The festival kicks off on Canada Day with a free community concert by the Shipyard Kitchen Party inside the Collingwood Amphitheatre at 7 p.m.
Other notables performing at the Porchside Festival include Kyle Golemba, Jake McArthur, Dean Hollin and Gabs Sings Babs.
