Adams Morgan Spring PorchFest returns on Saturday, May 4 from 2-6pm! Featuring approximately 80 bands, this event will showcase some of DC’s best local musical talent featuring nearly every musical genre, including classic rock, funk, go-go, rap, reggae, blue grass, classical, and pop. Twenty porches, business patios, parks, and the closed 18th Street will become stages for the day, drawing music-lovers from around the region into the tree-lined streets and small businesses of Adams Morgan. 18th Street NW (between Columbia and Kalorama Roads NW) will be closed to vehicular traffic creating additional safe space for performances.

Event patrons can pick up a music map and FREE wristband at three different event headquarter locations. The first location is in the plaza in front of Truist Bank at the corner of Columbia and Adams Mill Roads NW. The second location is in front of 2424 18th Street NW inside the road closure. The third location is in the Marie Reed Elementary School Plaza in front of the Recreation Center located at 2200 Champlain St NW. Event wristbands provide attendees with dozens of discounts at various Adams Morgan businesses. After picking up a wristband and event map, guests can stroll through 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. Limited edition Spring PorchFest t-shirts will be available for purchase on a first come first serve basis at Smash! Records, Adams Morgan Ace Hardware, Urban Dwell, and Because Science the week leading up to and during the event!

Each PorchFest location will host up to four 45-minute sets, all of which are free and open for all to enjoy. Due to overwhelming success over the last few years, we are excited to announce that we will have THREE main stages this year  – the Plaza Main Stage (in front of Truist Bank) ,the Aetna Main Stage (at 2424 18th Street within the 18th Street closure), and the Marie Reed Stage (in Marie Reed Elementary School’s Plaza).

Main stage headliners include the iconic DC Go Go band, Chuck Brown Band, The Experience Band & Show, Flex Matthews Band, Gotcha Covered, Bryan Lee, Max Rosado and The 7th St Band, Gracie Jay, and more! The full lineup of performers can be found at in the coming weeks.
