Porchfest Belleville announces the event date of Saturday, September 27th, 2014.  Porchfest is a neighbourhood celebration of music, where local residents and friends perform on front porches to an audience that moves from house venue to house venue.
Discovered and brought to Belleville by Ken Hudson and Lucinda Pritchard in 2009, Porchfest is now in its sixth year in the City of Belleville. After five (5) successful years and a great deal of prudent research, Ken and Lucinda decided to transition the production of this year's event to the local Rotary Club of Belleville to ensure the event's future viability.  Ken and Lucinda are thrilled to pass Porchfest on to Rotary and are excited to see how Rotary's dedicated membership enhances and grows this event for years to come.  They feel it's a great situation for the community.  Rotarian Sam Brady, chair of Porchfest is very pleased to be affiliated with this community building event.  Rotary's role with its community-minded volunteers and advocates for culture, music and kids fits well with Porchfest and its mandate.  Porchfest has and continues to bring a lot to our East Hill neighbourhood and the Quinte region at large.  What better way to explore the beauty of the old East Hill while enjoying the talents of Quinte's local musicians.  The Old East hill boundary for this event is defined as John Street to MacDonald Avenue and from Bridge Street East to Pine Street.
The opening ceremony is at 12:45 p.m. at Glanmore House, Glanmore National Historic Site, 257 Bridge Street East with music at all venues starting at 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.  Visit the website www.porchfest.ca for more information on music acts and venues.
