Front Porch Concerts is a pop-up concert series set on front porches throughout Chicago's diverse neighborhoods. Our goal is to create a unique live music experience while building community and promoting city exploration.
According to it’s definition, a front porch is a structure attached to the entrance of a house, but we see it as much more than that. It is a private space that is open to the community. It is a spot for spontaneous gatherings, catching up with friends, and meeting Chicago neighbors. We chose the front porch as our venue because it’s a place that simply brings people together.
Our concerts are a place to discover local musicians as well as the many neighborhoods of Chicago. We love the diverse talent within Chicago's music scene and welcome local artists to perform in an intimate setting. With our concerts, we hope to strengthen Chicago's communities and bring some small town charm to the windy city.
Thank you to everyone who joined us in 2016.
See you next summer!
