Sharon Porchfest (Re-imagined) 2020 will take place on September 13, 2020.

Despite social distancing restrictions, Sharon Porchfest can take place (with some modifications) while still adhering to our original goals:

  • create a day of public celebration.
  • make the community stronger because neighbors get to know each other as people. 
  • foster a broader sense of cohesion and shared interest.
  • showcase the diversity of our town.

This year, you are invited to perform on your porch, in your driveway, in a window, or anywhere near your home where you feel inspired to create and share your talent. Express yourself through music, dance, artwork, poetry, comedy, acrobatics, etc. Inspire yourself, your family, and your neighbors. If you have been quarantining with others, you may be able to perform as a small group, but otherwise, we expect this event to be smaller and more intimate than last year. In most cases, you will be performing at your own home, by yourself or with your family — for the people in your neighborhood. While spectators may travel to other neighborhoods to enjoy the performances there, we ask that everyone respect whatever social distancing guidelines are in place in September (i.e. avoid large groups, wear masks, stay at least six feet apart). 

Please visit the Performer Sign-up page to let us know who you are and where and when you’ll be performing. And don’t forget to tag #sharonporchfest on your photos or email them to info@sharonporchfest.com.
