JACKSONVILLE, FL, August 15, 2023 - Jacksonville PorchFest returns for its ninth year on

Presented by Springfield Preservation and Revitalization (SPAR), Jacksonville PorchFest is a
FREE, family- and dog-friendly music festival held on the beautiful front porches of the Historic
Springfield community, just north of Downtown Jacksonville, Florida. This year’s event will take
place on Saturday, November 4th and will feature over 20 musical acts performing from 12 PM -
8 PM, plus food trucks, craft beer, art vendors, and more.
Jacksonville PorchFest 2023 will take place in the Northwest Quadrant of Historic Springfield

festival’s history. The festival will feature a main stage and headliner to close out the night.
Headliner and band lineup announcements coming soon. VIP tickets - including access to the
VIP Area with complimentary beer, wine, and food - can be purchased on the Jacksonville

Proceeds from the festival support public arts in Jacksonville’s Urban Core. Since PorchFest
