Oswego’s Porchfest sees approximately 800 guests strolling through the neighborhoods and enjoying this free community building festival. It has been an overwhelming success - more than 20 performances (bands, storytellers, poets, barbershop quartets, and a choir) appeared on the front porches of 17 different homes. The performers donate their talent and time. The host homes donate the use of their porches, front or side yards and/or driveways for the performances. Many of the host homes also offer free bottled water, snacks and in some cases fire up their outdoor grills and provide hot dogs and hamburgers.
