Porchfest 2019

Sunday, May 19, Modesto Porchfest returns. Porchfest started in Modesto just two years ago in July 2017 with 30 locations and 45 acts if you do not count the gaggle of VMI bands playing the same day at the Gallo Center for the Arts. Now in its third year, it has grown to 45 porches and an after party at Ralston’s Goat with over 100 acts performing once again not counting the numerous VMI bands at the Gallo Center. The event has won two Modesto Area Music Awards(for Small and Large Events) and has become one of the most anticipated community concerts. Make plans to ride your bike and catch some of the area’s best performers in this unique setting. 

ModestoView/MAMA is hosting a porch at 913 Edgebrook with performances by Triple D, Patty Castillo Davis, Sticks & Stones, Cloak & Swagger and Third Party. Bangarang will be performing a few houses down at 901 Edgebrook.
