The annual and innovatively folksy Sanford Porchfest returns on Saturday, Feb. 27, for its fourth edition. Across a walkable, eight-block residential stretch just off the main strip of Historic Downtown Sanford, the community event and music festival this year features 12 porches of live music showcasing 50 acts, including prime local names like Hannah Harber, Thomas Wynn, Jordan Foley, Oakhill Drifters, Cat Ridgeway & the Tourists and Beemo.
See related PDF Sanford_Porchfest_map_2021.pdf To enhance social distancing and pedestrian safety, each festival block will be closed to cars. It’s a full, free and lively afternoon that’s become a vibrant new Sanford tradition. Music starts at noon.

If you go out, respect everyone’s distance, for all our sakes.
