Wellfleet PorchFest 2017

Wellfleet Porchfest will take place Saturday August 26th from 2-5pm.

A self-guided walking musical tour called “Wellfleet Porchfest,” featuring unplugged, acoustic music through the heart of Wellfleet. Two hours where folks can stroll at their leisure through town and hear all genres of music and all sizes of bands; depending on what fits on a porch. The musicians donate their talent to make this Non-Profit event happen!
The mission behind Wellfleet PorchFest is to have unplugged & unamplified music in a gentle atmosphere of JoyFul Noise, we believe that acoustic is the purist and most beautiful manifestation of the musical form of expression. We hope our Cape neighbors will enjoy strolling from porch to porch enjoying all the variety. There shouldn’t be any overlapping of the music; thus, no conflict.
