The schedule has been released for Porchfest 2021.

This year’s downsized Porchfest will see 12 different performers playing on 10 porches throughout Vankleek Hill. The event will run from noon until 5 p.m. on July 17.

The full schedule for Porchfest 2021 can be found here .

Unlike a normal year when bands sign themselves up on the Porchfest website, the musicians playing at the 2021 event were asked by invitation to play. A return to the normal format of open registration for musicians will return in 2022 after the pandemic is over.

All COVID-19 safety protocols in place at the time of the event must be followed. Masks and social distancing will be mandatory for spectators at Porchfest this year, regardless of what regulations are in place the day of the event.

Porchfest organizers are also hoping to video all of the musicians this year so that anyone who is not able to attend can view the performances on the Porchfest Facebook page

Low’s Realty Inc. in Vankleek Hill has returned as the title sponsor of Porchfest for 2021. The event is also receiving support from Champlain Township.
