It’s Newton PorchFest sign-up time!

PorchFest is coming to Newton!  On June 2, 2018, noon to 4 PM. FREE music (all genres) will be performed on that often underused space, the front porch. Auburndale is the inaugural village, but we’re hoping the event spreads to all Newton villages in future years. We need musicians, porch owners (in Auburndale), volunteers, and funding to make this grassroots effort a success
  • Musicians:  Are you a musician that wants to perform? All genres are welcome!
  • Porch Owners: Are you an Auburndale resident that has an available porch, driveway or lawn on June 2nd?
  • Other Volunteers: Are you interested in helping in other ways?
  • Donations:  As this is a grassroots effort, any and all donations help.
To sign-up and for more information:   Check out our web page
