HISTORY:

The first Porchfest was held in Ithaca, NY in 2007. Since then, Porchfests have sprung up in over 100 other cities and towns across North America. Check out the list of all the porchfests elsewhere.

Trumansburg Porchfest was started by a couple of Main Street business owners and a few village residents. The first annual took place on June 17, 2017 with over 40 acts playing shows on over 30 porches.

In 2018 Trumansburg Porchfest became an official event of the Trumansburg Area Chamber of Commerce. The Trumansburg Chamber of Commerce and Trumansburg Porchfest are completely volunteer run.
