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.

“With the unrivaled talent in and around Nashville, we all regularly have the opportunity to see one-of-a-kind live performances, yet there’s nothing quite like Westhaven Porchfest,” said Mary Lee Bennett, Marketing Manager for Westhaven. “Where else can you walk the streets of a stunning community, pull out a fold-up chair wherever you’d like and listen to best Nashville has to offer? Porchfest is a unique music and art event unlike anything else in Nashville.”
