PorchFest Armory Park (June 30th, 2013)

 A friend and I went down to PorchFest Armory Park Sunday evening and really enjoyed it.  This was the first (of hopefully many) PorchFest events here.

Nineteen musical acts played on 12 neighborhood porches.  Residents offered up their porches to musicians and folks just walked/biked between houses, perhaps stopping at a food truck or ice cream vendor along the way.  It was a really nice evening, great people, great music, and great weather since a summer monsoon rain had cooled the temperature down just before things got started and provided refreshing breezes throughout the evening.  I'm definitely looking forward to the next one.

The home of KXCI Community Radio, also one of the performance venues of the night.


  1. This looks fantastic! We'll need to attend one of these someday!

  2. Those houses all look to be in an historical area. And you can send me some of that rain and cooler weather any time!

  3. Those homes all appear to be in an historic area of town. And you can send me some of that rain and cooler weather any day!

    1. Hi Bruce, yes indeed, that neighborhood is one of the older historic neighborhoods in Tucson and is on the national historic registry.
