WHAT IS PORCHROKR?
Highland Square’s annual PorchRokr Music and Art Festival transforms the verandas of one of Akron's most historic and eclectic neighborhoods into one-day art studios and concert venues. Thousands of locals and out-of-towners rock out to some 130 diverse musicians and artists, using both area residences and business establishments as their personal stage. The festival rotates each year among four sections of Highland Square to encourage spontaneous interaction among all its neighbors.PorchRokr is Saturday, August 17, 2019.
I wanna PERFORM
Banjo. Electric guitar. Saxophone. Violin. Accordion. Whatever you enjoy playing, our audience will enjoy listening. Whether it’s hard rock, blue grass or pitch-perfect acapela, we’re ready to get our groove on.
I wanna SELL
From vintage clothing and accessories to handmade jewelry, upcycled furniture and gourmet goods, your trinkets are someone else’s treasures. Shop. Eat. Play.
