Porchfest Comes to S.F. in May

Musicians and bands will post up on porches and backyards in the Mission on Saturday, May 20.

Porchfest, a free, open-air music festival started in Ithaca, New York in 2007, is coming to San Francisco this May. More than two dozen acts, like San Mateo harpist Erica Messer, San Jose ska band Monkey, and S.F. guitarist Franz Jermany will be at the event which takes place on Saturday, May 20, from noon to 6 p.m.

But the coolest thing about Porchfest, aside from the fact that it’s free, is where it is held. The musicians will post up in backyards, porches, parklets, storefronts, stoops, and backyards throughout the Mission, and is on track to be bigger and better than last year’s Porchfest.
