Announcing Apalachicola’s inaugural grassroots community music festival — where front porches become stages, yards become venues, and generosity and good will rule the day.
The Apalach Porch Fest will be held on November 7, 2020 in Downtown Apalachicola. The festival will begin at noon at Trinity Episcopal Church, located at 69 6th Street. Each musical act will perform for about an hour in a staggered line-up, with the wrap up party on the porch o the Gibson Inn.
Attendees are encouraged to bring your own chairs, blankets, coolers, drinks, and their own generosity to share with others (beads, stickers, candy, etc…) Have fun, be creative …. it’s what the day is all about.
Musical acts include area musicians – Clayton Mathis, Tommy Cooper, Hot Mess, Flying Fish, Cat Braaten, Smoldering’ Embers, Apalachicola Blues Authority, David Lloyd, and Mathew Hutch. Please do bring $ for tipping musicians, as they are all donating their time for this event.
Porch Fest Apalach will have limited edition t-shirts for sale.
Franklin County Humane Society is our charity of choice for this year, and we will be collecting donations at each porch. As well, the FCHS will be at the event with adoptable pets.
