Going against the odds, last September it looked like the outdoor Natick Center Porchfest musical extravaganza while just about every other event was nixed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But less than a week before the event was to have taken place, it was nixed due to rising COVID-19 case numbers.
Now, however, Natick Porchfest is on for Saturday, Sept. 25 from 2-6pm.
This is a free event where singers and bands perform on porches, lawns and other such casual venues.
I’ve been to pre-COVID porchfests in Arlington and Brookline and they were a ton of fun. Great vibes and discoveries while sampling a variety of music you might not otherwise be exposed to if left to your own tastes.
Organizers of Natick Porchfest are looking for people to host musicians on their porches, and for neighborhood coordinators and musicians to help with planning.
