Even as other area public events, from Natick Days to various parades have been nixed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it seemed like maybe, just maybe Natick Porchfest could be held on Sept. 26. The event would have allowed music fans to listen to bands and singers who would perform at a social distance from their porches or other venues.
But alas, organizers this weekend announced the event scheduled for next weekend would not be happening.
“We knew it was risky to try to plan an event and unfortunately with the rising numbers of COVID around us we feel that it is our responsibility to help flatten the coronavirus curve and keep you safe. In order to do this, we have decided to cancel Porchfest. Thank you for your understanding and we hope we can try again next year!”
The May edition of Natick Center PorchFest turned into a virtual at-home event in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
