Reminder: Porchfest Edmonds community event set for Nov. 5

Calling all music lovers and others. Downtown residents, businessescand the City of Edmonds will host a new performance event called Porchfest Edmonds on Saturday, Nov. 5, from 2 to 5 p.m. in the downtown Edmonds.

This event is a community-led partnership with the City of Edmonds’ Reimagining Neighborhoods and Streets program and the Everyone’s Edmonds Comprehensive Plan visioning effort. A key objective of the Reimagining program, the city said, is to raise awareness of how residents can use their streets and public spaces in ways that promote community togetherness and support economic development at the neighborhood level.

Porchfest is a free, walkable event throughout downtown that will feature musical performances using neighborhood spaces such as porches, yards and alleys. The event will kick off at the main stage from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Red Barn, 228 5th Ave. S. It will include musical performances along with an illustrative representation of the city’s summer visioning effort. The visioning is part of the city’s 2024 update of Edmonds’ Comprehensive Plan that will shape the next 20 years of population and employment growth.

If you are interested in hosting a Porchfest guest for an unamplified performance outside your home or business, or in an adjacent street or alley, fill out a host registration form.

  1. I keep imagining sidewalks on 96th Ave West, so my neighbors walking their children to Westgate Elementary School will be safe! What a great start it would be for the City to put kids walking to school safety first.

  2. How about fixing the downtown sidewalks and enforcing the restrictions on A boards blocking reducing sidewalk access.

  3. How about imagining sidewalks on 80th Ave so we can safely walk without being concerned about being hit by cars?
