Want to rock the world? Start in our ‘hood!

With just one month until the big day, the Grand Porch Party wants to get you involved in this afternoon of awesome music.

Host: If you live in the event neighbourhood and would like to have a musician playing on your front porch, let us know! We’ll match you with an appropriate musician (no 50-piece orchestras on tiny front stoops, we promise!).

– Porch-stage assistants will be on hand to help musicians if they need anything (stage set-up, a glass of water, someone to hold their cheering fans at bay…).
– Event assistants will help make signage for the day, and could even get to build a few of the instruments for our Children’s Music Garden.
– Grand River ambassadors will hit the streets early with buckets of chalk to write neat information about the watershed, draw funky art to go with the music, and guide people towards stages in the area.

If you’re interested in any of the above, please get in touch with Tenille (at) alternativesjournal (dot) ca and help make some magic happen!


About grandporchparty

The Grand Porch Party is an annual neighbourhood music event where we take over the porches, and then the streets, for some fab early-summer music. First launched in 2011.

    What a great idea! I write a blog about open musical spaces (mostly jams, open stages and song circles) but here is an idea I have never heard of before. Has this been done other places or did you invent the concept? I’m hosting a house concert later that same day but I will definitely try to get there if I can.

    • Hey Julie,
      I’ve not heard of any events like this elsewhere, but that’s not to say they haven’t been held. It’s just something I came up with one afternoon. I do hope you can make it on the day!
