Ottawa Porchfest

On September 7th, Wellington West hosts one of the most fun and unique music festivals around, Ottawa Porchfest.

You’ll find over 60 musical performances happening all over the nighbourhood, in venues that range from porches to patios to parks and retail shops. Porchfest shows happen between 1pm and 5pm, followed by a concert in Parkdale Park 6pm to 9pm. Use this handy map below to see where and when the action is happening. (Expand to full screen and toggle performances on and off by start time.)

Ottawa Porchfest is a FREE community based arts festival that allows local artists to entertain and express on volunteered porches and businesses around the neighborhood. Multiple acts go on simultaneously on porches and in shops throughout the local community. We aim to expand on the idea that local artists have a great silent talent.
