Thank you, community of Winters for helping make Porchfest a success! The day was beautiful and the talent runneth over. In case you missed it, we had 26 musical acts ranging from a solo Cellist to solo singer songwriters to full bands on 10 porches! Along Main Street we had local artist vendors with handmade art, crafts, signs, jewelry, dried flower bouquets and farm fresh products.  We also had delicious gourmet food trucks on standing by. There were also children of ALL ages participating in tattooing Main Street with chalk. Overall, the sun was shining, not too hot with a little breeze and good vibes were on tap all over Main Street. We were able to raise a nice amount of money to donate to Winters Music Boosters and still have additional filtering in. There are some event T-shirts and tank tops available to purchase from the Porchfest Organizers. We would like to thank our sponsor, the donors, the musicians and the vendors who all made this event possible! So everyone knows, the talent on display ALL donated their time, energy and creativity to make the magic happen. Thank you to our Porchfest sponsor Adidas and Megan Curry of Adidas.
