Join us for the second annual PatioFest not to be confused with Porchfest. On June 15th 6-9 pm the streets of Downtown Modesto will be filled with music coming from the patios from 19 participating restaurants, cafes and bars. You are invited to stroll around Downtown and check out not just the music but also discover a new favorite night spot or place for lunch. With a big horn section and a Latin funk sound, G Street Revolution will be heard in 10th Street Plaza by the patrons on the patios at Ralston’s Goat, Fuzio and Graffiti Dogs and those walking by. Ava Grace & the New Sound will be at Cafe Deva and Koala and the Goldenboy will be across the street at Concetta performing for those on the patio or who stroll by. Sincerely Allison will be singing at Commonwealth, Brick City Bandoliers at  Tresetti’s while Remedy acoustic will be stationed at Barkin Dog Grill, Borrowed Time returns to the Fox Pub and MF Silverado will be back at Bayou Grill. Funstrummers, Melynda Rodriguez and others will also be performing. For a full list of artists and venues check out
