Historic Athens Porchfest – Athens, Georgia – 10/06/2019

There are a LOT of super cool things about living in Athens, Georgia.

Historic Athens Porchfest has to be the COOLEST!

Throughout four historic neighborhoods, Pulaski Heights, Newtown, Boulevard, and Buena Vista, almost 70 bands played on 70 porches throughout the day.

And the schedule culminated with a very exciting event on the porch of Athens Mayor, Kelly Girtz!

How’s that for community?!

This was the first event of this type here, and hopefully it’s not the last!

I’d love to see them do this regularly throughout the year. But, at the very least, I think we ALL have high hopes for this to be an annual event of epic proportions!

Joe Cat

Joe Cat was phenomenal! We only caught the tail end of his set, but we could have listened for hours! I do hope to see him around again locally sometime soon!


Petalboat offered some unique ambient clarinet arrangements, followed by some fun guitar work.

Georgia Dirt Boys

The fun folksy, country sound of Georgia Dirt Boys was like taking a ride in the woods after supper and some sweet tea at Mimi’s house. I actually had a Great Grandma we called Mimi, so I felt this!

Palace Doctor was awesome, too! Such a talented singer / songwriter and a fabulously nice guy to boot!

Yes, yes! We love Athens! And Porchfest is now on the top of the list of the many reasons we do!
