Arlington Porchfest is a cherished celebration of community through music. In challenging times, the spirit of this heartening event is more essential than ever. We may not be able to gather on our front lawns right now, but we can still make music. We can still share it with our neighbors. We can still savor the moment and express our appreciation of it.

ACA invites all the citizens of Arlington to join together for a shared experience, albeit a virtual one. Sing. Play. Listen. Respond. Let’s get creative and find new ways to connect at this time when we need each other most. Hopefully, on June 7, we ‘ll celebrate Porchfest 2020 in person as is our tradition in this great town.

In the meantime, we encourage you to share your music with the community by uploading a video of you playing your music (either pre-recorded with your band, or something new from home) to the Arlington Porchfest site
