About

Front Porch Fest was created at the foot of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Patrick County, Virginia. It started as a gathering of friends and family; a going away celebration for one of our own. With the fire burning high and night falling, everyone gathered to enjoy the music being made by some close friends; Poverty Level, The Celthix, David Via…

We awoke the next morning to the smell of breakfast on the stove, the sight of tents adorning the edge of the woods, and the sweet sound of Michael Franti coming through the speakers. As we sat on the front porch reminiscing about the previous night, a EUREKA moment struck. Why not recreate this weekend every year? And in this moment of clarity, the Front Porch Fest seed was planted.
The festival is produced by a group of family, friends and funsters inspired by the idea that life is enriched by art, with music at its soul. Lovers of music come together in an intimate outdoor setting where the distinction between artist and audience is blurred. Local, regional and national musicians showcase their talent on two stages with no overlapping sets so that you never have to miss a beat. Front Porch Fest is a family friendly event, so bring the kids! They can groove to the tunes while doing arts & crafts in the Children’s Area. There is an Awareness Village, which provides information on different causes that are important to the area. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to camp with us! There is both field and woods camping on site, with food and merchandise vendors to help make your weekend more enjoyable.
Proceeds from the festival are donated to the Patrick County Food Bank. We think it’s important to give back to the community and Front Porch Fest is our way of making the planet a better place. The Awareness Village is always looking for a good cause to promote, so let us know of any special efforts in and around the area. We strive to make you feel at home and at peace and we think you’ll agree that Front Porch Fest is like no other.
