Still interested in playing the Grand Porch Party? Follow us on Twitter and Facebook and stay up to date about our 2018 season!

It’s that time of year again. We’d like to invite you to grace our porches for the Grand Porch Party 2017, Waterloo’s original and best community-made music festival. Mark your calendar for Sunday, June 11, 2017 (2-5 pm) and start daydreaming of warm, summer days filled with music, community and fun!

If you’ve played the last two consecutive events (2015 and 2016) we ask you to please 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 are eligible to play and are interested in joining us, please apply online by filling out the form at the following link: Grand Porch Party 2017 Musicians’ Application . Please submit your application no later than April 16.

We are again securing sponsorships in order to pay honorariums.

One more thing, we have made a small change this year – we would like to request that if you are going to sell merchandise at the event to please organize for it to be sold during your performance (and within 15 minutes of your performance ending) at or in front of the porch you are playing.  We think this will allow you to promote yourself better and connect the merchandise directly to each musician/band.

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

Here’s looking forward to another great 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!
