Watch this space for the full 2021 Adams Morgan PorchFest schedule, coming soon

Adams Morgan PorchFest returns on Saturday, October 2 with more than 60 local bands! Approximately 20 porches, patios, and stoops will become stages for the day, drawing music-lovers from around the region into the tree-lined streets and small businesses of Adams Morgan. With over 70 performances in one afternoon and more porch hosts and bands than ever before, this is sure to be the biggest and best Adams Morgan PorchFest to date!

Event patrons can pick up a music map and wristband at the event headquarters located at the corner of Columbia and Adams Mill Roads NW in BB&T Bank (now Truist) Plaza. Limited edition t-shirts and swag will also be available for purchase. Event wristbands are FREE and provide attendees with dozens of discounts at various Adams Morgan businesses. After stopping by the headquarters, guests can stroll around the neighborhood for nonstop musical performances from 2-6pm, enjoy lunch, dinner or drinks at a neighborhood hangout, and shop for unique gifts at local boutiques. 

So that we can best prepare for this safe and fun neighborhood event, your RSVP is requested but not required. Please RSVP here.


Adams Morgan PorchFest is hosted by the Adams Morgan Partnership BID and sponsored by our generous community partner, Gifted Curators. Gifted Curators, one of DC’s most prominent hubs for local and national artists, combines their passions of street art, counter culture, music, and cannabis since 2020 to create a beautiful gallery setting in the heart of Adams Morgan. With a strong focus on community, Gifted Curators is dedicated to fostering an environment where all are welcome to come in and discover what sparks their creativity. Other event partners include Cultural Tourism DC, Lars Etzkorn Law PLLC, and Pipkin Creative.
