Since 2007, Celebrating community through music on the porches of Fall Creek and Northside! Porchfest began in 2007, inspired by some outdoor ukulele playing and a conversation between neighbors Gretchen Hildreth and Lesley Greene. They came up with the idea for it that day and gathered 20 bands to make it happen in September of that year. The number of bands has increased every year since then, with 185 in 2016. There will be food trucks and vendors at various locations around the neighborhood, especially near Thompson Park.
