The Sanford Porchfest Music Festival is upon us once again this Saturday February 25th, 11am-745pm! Now in its 6th year, it’s bigger and better than ever!
We here at Historic Downtown Sanford® are happy to be sponsoring again and will be setup at The McLendons PORCH #13 with our friends from Sanford Brewing Company! Be sure to stop by and say hello!

HOW TO PORCHFEST:
Load up your chairs and blankets as we transform the historic district into an artistic gathering space! Spend the day meeting new neighbors and experiencing all that Sanford Porchfest has to offer: live music, art auction, food vendors and fun surprises on every curb.
This FREE event is built and ran entirely on goodwill: so please donate to the Sanford Porchfest Scholarship fund by purchasing merch, making a cash or digital donation at any of the porches, or bidding on one of our art auction items. Don’t forget to tip the bands, who also donate their time to bring you this incredible event!
100% of the proceeds (generated from donations, art sales and merchandise sales) will be reinvested into the community by funding art-based programming and fine art scholarships throughout Seminole County.
An official Sanford Porchfest Trolley will run from designated parking lots to the festival footprint. For the best places to park, enter 116 Hood Avenue on your GPS and park by the lots down by the Downtown Sanford Marina.
Thirteen of CFL’s best food vendors will be jamming out some good eats to fill your dancing tank!
Alcohol is prohibited and open container law will be enforced per FL State Law by the Sanford Police Department. Coolers subject to search by SPD.
The festival footprint is a pedestrian only zone. Sanford Police Dept. prohibits any motorized vehicles in the festival, including golf carts.
BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR:
Our neighborhood opens their hearts to this event every year, allowing us to take over the blocks for a rockin’ good time. Be considerate of our neighbors’ properties and space when here so we can continue to come back every year.
