Since opening in April, The Porch has been alive with performances, pop-ups, and of course, food trucks! We welcomed local band SNACKTIME for a kick-off party, gave away free flowers, tacos, and plants, hosted live music, and were excited to see people returning to the space after a long winter. 

We're excited to share details on June food trucks, pop-ups, and performances below. We hope to see you at The Porch!
