Music and food and vendors – oh my! Vidalia Porchfest featured all of this and more, as citizens strolled the streets enjoying fellowship and local talent.
The event featured a book signing at the Dr. Mark and Tonya Spivey Public Library, performances by Franklinia Playhouse, over 20 music artists, artisans, food trucks, and a painting demonstration to ensure everyone had something that interested them.
The Porchfest committee reflected on the event and shared their gratitude, as they said, “’Thank you’ doesn’t seem enough. We are tired and worn out as volunteers and porch hosts, but it was all worth it, believe me. It is the goal of the Altama Museum of Art & History to heighten awareness continued from page
to the arts, to bring an organic sense of community, music, food, and artisans. We very much feel like we succeeded, and we hope you do, as well. We are eternally grateful to our performers that participate out of a pure love for their craft and travel so far just to play for us. You are all amazing. Until we meet again, one year from now. Thank you for supporting us. Our community is the best!”
