More than 60 acts scheduled for Fifth Annual PorchFest

OSWEGO - The Oswego PorchFest will celebrate its fifth year when the event takes place from 1-6 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22.

More than 60 acts are scheduled to perform this year. When Oswego PorchFest started five years ago it featured 17 performing acts. Each year the number of performers has grown setting new records every year. The performances take place on the front porches and lawns of more than 50 homeowners in Oswego’s historic west-side neighborhoods of Franklin Square and Montcalm Parks.

This is a free family fun event organized by neighbors under the watchful eye of its founder Gerri Millar. Performers donated their time and talent and homeowners donated the use of their homes and their hospitality. The public can stroll through the west-side historic neighborhoods enjoying hundreds of homes dating back to the mid-1800s as they listen to a variety of music from every venue that changes from block to block and hour to hour.

Oswego PorchFest receives financial support from PathFinder Bank and the Oswego Renaissance Association as well as in-kind support from DuFore’s Jewelers, iHeart Oswego, Oswego County News and UpWard Graphics.
