The birds are chirping, the grass is finally showing again and it’s Springtime, which means we are getting closer to the 2019 Grand Porch Party! We would like to invite you to grace our porches once again for Waterloo’s original and best community-made music festival. Mark your calendars for Sunday June 9, 2019 from 1-5pm (note we’ve got a new time this year!) and start dreaming of those hazy, warm summer days filled with friendship, music, neighbours and fun!

We’ve created a policy of asking those who have played the last two
consecutive events (played in both 2017 and 2018) to sit this next event out.
If you are in this category, please know that we still love you. We just think you’ve
earned a day off! If you have not played consecutively in the past two years and are
interested in joining us, please apply online by filling out the form at the following
link: GPP 2019 Application for Musicians. 

Please submit your application no later than April 30th, 2019.

Applications are now closed! Thank you to all who applied, you will be hearing from us shortly!

If you are going to sell merchandise at the event, we ask that you sell it during your performance (and within 15 minutes of your performance ending) at or in front of the porch you are playing.  We think doing it this way, allows you to promote yourself and connect with your merchandise better! 

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch! Our email is info@

We are very much looking forward to another amazing Grand Porch Party event!

    It says the form “Application to Play the Grand Porch Party 5″ is no longer accepting responses”. Say it isn’t so!
