Spend an afternoon strolling the streets of Spokane’s West Central neighborhood for the third annual PorchFest this Saturday. Homeowners in the “new” (Kendall Yards) and “old” (traditional West Central) sections of the neighborhood are opening up their front porches to the rest of us; a chance to get to know our fellow Spokanites, and to get a taste of the area’s eclectic charm. Seventeen homes offer stops for the event, in total hosting 20 musicians and poets who perform throughout the afternoon and into the evening. PorchFest’s aim is to promote community building in the economically diverse neighborhood, and to showcase some of the many individuals contributing to our region’s cultural vitality.
Sat, Sept. 17, starting at 3 pm • Free • All-ages • West Central Neighborhood, Spokane • bit.ly/PorchFestWestCentral16
