Bill Wheeler has updated the Festival Map with the latest changes and it is now on the website. Thanks, Bill! We will update the schedule as Doug confirms changes. A few groups have cancelled.
Due to high water on Hodges Street, the Village Market will be relocated to the Main Stage area at Freemason Street and South Avenue, the Food Court will be in Lou Mac Park, and the Festival Information Booth will be at the Transportation Hub at Main and Broad streets. The Old Hotel at Broad and Hodges will remain as a porch venue; a search for a new venue for the group at the Village Gallery is under way. Also, revisions to the festival map on this website will be made by tomorrow.
Weather Update: The Ol’ Front Porch Music Festival will go on! If high water forces any changes in porch venues, we will post the information on our homepage, olfrontporchmusicfestival.org Please stay tuned to the website and to towndock.net for changes. Towndock is also monitoring flood levels inland that might affect routes and researching alternate routes.
With compliments to Bill Wheeler, the 2016 Festival Map is now on the website. It’s rich with detail and will be a great asset to festival goers, especially the smart phone version which allows you to zoom in and out. Try it on your phone! Click here to see it on the website. Thanks, Bill!
We have more than 30 groups and individual performers lined up to play on 22 porches. Click here to see the full schedule put together by Doug Sligh. The website has been updated and expanded, with the exception of the map, but Bill Wheeler is working on that as we speak. Also, Roz Kutchins is still looking for vendors. Applications for vendors and for those who want to volunteer or provide assistance are on the site under the menu tab, “Get Involved.” Please take a look at the website and encourage your friends to follow this blog by entering their email address in blog area in the right column of the homepage. We’ll post breaking information and changes to the blog as the festival approaches. Thanks!
The first part of what will be a growing ad campaign for the festival has begun on Towndock.net. Check out our rotating banner ad in the right column.
