Porchfests are annual music events held across the United States and in Canada on front porches or in the backyards of local residents.Started in Ithaca, New York in 2007, porchfest events bring local musicians and neighborhoods together to celebrate and create a sense of community.

Bands, singers, and instrumentalists participate in the festival for no other reason than to showcase their talents and engage the community. Music is diverse and can range from country to pop, classical, reggae, blues, rock, jazz, Latino, R&B, folk and many others. Musicians voluntarily take to the “stage” on porches at their designated times and perform for the public. Signs with artists’ names and performance times are usually posted in front of porches and online.

Les balconfêtes sont des événements musicaux annuels qui sont tenus à travers le Canada et les États-Unis, sur les balcons ou dans les cours des résidents. Originaires d’Ithica, dans l’état de New-York en 2007, ces activités réunissent les musiciens et les voisins, pour célébrer et créer un sentiment d’appartenance à la communauté.

Les groupes musicaux, les chanteurs et les instrumentistes participent au festival tout simplement pour mettre en valeur leurs talents et s’impliquer dans la communauté. Les genres musicaux sont diversifiés, partant du country, pop, classique, reggae, blues, rock, jazz, latin, R&B, folklore et plus encore. Les musiciens se mettent en scène sur les balcons à une heure désignée et performant pour le public.

Balconfête Hudson Porchfest was founded in September 2017 and is organized by local musicians in connection with the Hudson Bluegrass Society.
