Porchfest Lapeer is presented by the Lapeer DDA and Lapeer Main Street. This event will feature over 20 bands and entertainers, visual artists throughout the Lapeer DDA district on Saturday, July 16th from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM.

These types of events are popular all over the country from Flint to Florida. Ithaca, New York is home to the first Porchfest in 2007. I should point out that musicians and artists donate their time and talent to Porchfest performances. However, I don't see anything wrong with a tip jar for the performers.

Porchfest Lapeer is just one of many exciting events happening in Lapeer. The Monday Night Car Cruise is underway for the season, bike nights happen on Friday evenings, and don't forget about the Lapeer Food Truck Festival and Lapeer Days in August.

This is going to be an awesome event.  A big thanks to the Lapeer DDA and Lapeer Main Street for putting Porchfest Lapeer 2022 together. Unfortunately, I don't sing or play guitar well, or paint for that matter - but I will be there to support all that do.
