For anyone who missed this event the last the past 8 years and is wondering, “What is the heck is PorchFest?” Well, PorchFest is an evening of music, community, and summer! On a single summer evening, musicians will perform acoustic music at their respective homes or at a porch location donated by a neighbor, while others stroll through the neighborhood, enjoying the sounds and talent of their neighbors.
Sounds cool? It is!
Plan to join your neighbors in the streets on June 16, and learn how to support the event in the action notice below!
This is Kingfield Neighborhood’s signature event and 1000’s of community members come out to enjoy our amazing neighborhood, which overflows with so much talent. Neighbors can frequently be heard saying “THIS is what I love about Kingfield!”, as they fill the streets while free music fills the air.
Well, now is where you can SHOW your LOVE for PorchFest and keep it, and the Kingfield Neighborhood Association, strong into the future. Donate now and encourage others you know who value this great community and amazing event to also support it!

This year, the City of St. Paul, City of Minneapolis, City of Brooklyn Park, Ramsey County, and Hennepin County are partnering to bring a community cross government event to recognize the National Day of Racial Healing. Racism impacts all of us and we believe we need to create more safe spaces for our collective healing. This community event is intended to bring people together and strengthen relationships between local governments and community members.
We will discuss the racial equity work happening in our local governments and share resources for racial healing. There will be time for questions and answers as well as guided mediations.
Please register before joining.
- When: January 18, 2022 from 6-8 p.m.
