  • What about eating and drinking?
    Five Points is a sweet spot for various food offerings. Mario’s Five Points will have Pre-PorchFest specials, so go grab a great meal then pop on over for the music!! Just like a neighborhood party, there will be a food truck or two at Lewter’s Park including Ice Works Shaved Ice selling their fares for your enjoyment! Alcohol will not be sold or provided at the event. Trash and recycling receptacles will be provided at each Host Porch. Please show love to your neighbors and keep it clean.
  • Are dogs allowed?
    Rules for pets, including leash laws and waste, pick up, are the same as on any public street and sidewalk at any other time. All of PorchFest’s entertainment is on your neighbor’s porches, and different homeowners may have preferences related to dogs on their property.
  • Where do I park?
    We suggest biking or walking, but if you drive, please park toward the outer edges of the neighborhood. Ya know, Uber is a great way to travel without worrying about parking. How can I help?
