Come see the new Mapleton Hill Porchfest web site and all the details for 2021 here:
The PorchFest organizing committee met a few nights ago. We decided that the best and most responsible thing to do for the health and safety of our neighborhood and the broader community was to cancel this year’s event. It was a sad conclusion, but an easy one to make in light of the risk to our friends and families, porch hosts, and the bands.
This would have been the 9th annual Mapleton Hill PorchFest, and we know it would have been the best ever. We had more than 24 porches and bands lined up. We thank them for their enthusiasm for this wonderful event, and we hope that they will all reserve their spots for next year. We are committed to making PF 2021 happen, and look forward to a happier, more settled future. In the meantime, we wish good health and happiness to all for the rest of the summer and the rest of this crazy year. We’ll be back next spring!
Our beloved Mapleton Hill Porchfest is in the works for Sunday, September 20th!!
The PorchFest planning committee has already met and we are in full planning mode. Last year, we far exceeded any past event with almost 1200 happy attendees. While we are living in uncertain times, it’s great to have things to look forward to.
So block out your calendar, start imagining what our neighborhood will soon look like with the snow gone, all the leaves and gardens full of color, and how happy we’ll be when we can become a little more normal.
Of course, we will follow the Boulder and Colorado protocols for gatherings that are in force at the time of PorchFest, but we are keeping our fingers crossed at the same time that our limitations will be lifted by then.
We have a few requests to help form our 20+ bands, 20+ porches PorchFest:
1) Are you interested in hosting a band on your porch this year? Our footprint is 9th west to 4th and Pine north to Concord. It’s simple and fun.
2) Do you know of any bands that might be interested in performing? We entertain all different styles of music, but it is mostly “acoustic” (non-amplified).

Each year, our PorchFest Committee puts up two PorchFest banners on Mapleton Ave (4th & 9th) a week in advance of our event to promote the event. One of our PorchFest committee members has just reported that the banners have been removed. This theft or vandalism is a first for PorchFest. If anyone has any information about this, please contact us.
