Tune In to Jacksonville PorchFest in Springfield November 4: Music, Dancing, Food, Local Beer

When Christina Parrish Stone set out to bring people into Jacksonville's Springfield neighborhood in 2014 with a music festival using front porches of local houses as music stages, she expected a couple of hundred attendees. What happened, however, was that around 5000 people showed up. Stone, the Executive Director of the Springfield Preservation and Revitalization Council (SPAR), started Jacksonville PorchFest as a means to invite the public to the Springfield district, just north of the city's downtown, to see positive aspects of the area, along with the beautiful houses that grace the local streets. Each year, attendance has grown, with people travelling from other states, and as far away as Canada. The Fest is expected to attract thousands to Springfield on Saturday, November 4 for the 4th Annual PorchFest.

PorchFest is a family and pet-friendly community music festival at its essence, and proceeds benefit arts programming in Springfield. In addition to the houses, the festival's core location is Klutho Park on 3rd Street. The festival runs until 9pm. The fest route covers several blocks and is walkable. Festival maps will be available at Klutho Park.
