What is PORchfest?
Valentine Porchfest KC is a grassroots music festival that brings local musicians and bands together with the community to perform on the porches of neighbors in the Valentine neighborhood located in the heart of midtown in KCMO between Broadway and SW Trafficway, 33rd to 39th St.
People from all over the metro and beyond gather in the neighborhood to enjoy local music, admire the historic architecture, eat delicious food truck fare, and experience all that midtown has to offer.
Porchfest started in Ithaca, NY and has spread to various locations all over the country, some cities with multiple fests. Valentine Porchfest KC is the latest iteration of this festival showcasing local talent.
