The third annual Princeton Porchfest brought together the University and local community on Saturday, April 27, to enjoy the talents of local musicians and singers. The free festival was presented by the Arts Council of Princeton with support from Princeton University.

”Each April, Porchfest is an opportunity for the campus and community to enjoy a wide range of great performances, hang out with friends, and to shop or grab a bite to eat and drink at local cafes and restaurants,” said Kristin Appelget, assistant vice president for community and regional affairs.

For Porchfest 2024, 15 neighbor-volunteered porches throughout town and at Maclean House on campus were transformed into intimate mini-stages. Audiences sat in lawn chairs and blankets enjoying the performances, as students and other members of the University community mingled with Princeton residents.
