Great job to all who organized another great Porchfest - Hilton really is the perfect neighborhood for such an event!
A smashing success, in my humble opinion.
Well done to everyone that organized and played today.
Thank you so much to the organizers, performers, porch lenders, and others who made this a perfect afternoon.
Thanks to all the organizers! Thanks to Mayor McGehee for a wonderful introduction! And thanks to all of YOU who showed up to hear Big Train's set.
We LOVE this event. We're honored to have been part of this from the beginning and we hope that we get to play Maplewood Porchfest for many more years.

Porchfest took place Sunday 9/5/21 from 1:00-5:00 (from first post) - you missed it. It will be back next year I'm sure.
Are you saying ALL those performances occured on 1 day?
I thought so many events were scheduled over several weekends. That's why I asked for the dateS.
