Westhaven Porchfest, a music and art festival that transforms porches into performance stages and streets into a makers fair, will take place from 4 – 10pm on Saturday, June 18. Located in Southern Land Company’s Franklin community Westhaven, this year’s event will feature more than 100 musicians and over 50 of Tennessee’s highest quality local makers, crafters and artisans.
The Porchfest organizers want the thousands of attendees to be aware of a few rules. Check out their video:
