Porch Fest Apalach
October 21 @ 11:00 am - 7:00 pm
- This event has passed.
Apalachicola’s grassroots roaming music festival—where porches are stages, yards are venues, and good vibes rule the day!—returns for the fourth year, bigger and better.
26 Musical Acts
Porch Fest Apalach was created in 2020 as a way to share the diversity of music from our area and beyond, and pair it with the unique historic homes and neighborhoods of Apalachicola. Porch Festivals happen all over the world, and now there is one right here in our town.
The beloved Apalachicola “Ukuliles” will begin the day at 11 a.m. at Lafayette Park. More musical acts will then spread out through town, playing on porches and stages. The grand finale this year features “The Intoxicators,” a wildly popular surf band based out of North Florida, with a rollicking show, ending at 7 p.m.
There is plenty of time to go out and enjoy the Apalach nightlife, as some of the bands will perform on Saturday, and throughout the weekend, at local venues. Check local venue listings for details.
In addition to the multiple music acts, there will be food trucks and vendors at Lafayette and Battery Parks for the day. Local restaurants will also be open.
We encourage people to bring chairs, blankets, bicycles, wagons, picnics, cash (for tipping, donations, food, drink), hats and sunscreen.
Maps and a full schedule can be found on the event website and Facebook page.
