The City of Quincy and Quincy Main Street is hosting the 2017 Quincyfest and Porchfest on Saturday, October 28, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., on the Gadsden County Courthouse Square and throughout the downtown historic district. This year marks the 30th anniversary of Quincy Main Street and festival organizers have combined the annual Quincyfest with the popular Quincy Porchfest, now in its 6th year.

Visitors can wander the tree-lined streets of downtown Quincy's Historic District while enjoying a wide variety of music ranging from Gospel  to Big Band. Soft Rock, Classical, Country, Blues and Jazz will be featured on shaded porches and courtyards, including a free jazz concert by the Thursday Night Music Club on the historic Art Deco Leaf Theater stage. Come sketch with artists, visit the Gadsden Arts Center and Museum, or just simply stroll through one of North Florida's loveliest towns in beautiful, historic downtown Quincy!

The Main Stage will feature a broad range of musical genres beginning at 11:00am with Latin Soul Orchestra, neo-soul, gospel, rock, fusion band Session, Celtic Rock band Krooked Kilts, old-school rhythm and blues, jazz and funk band Acme Rhythm and Blues, and local favorite, Quincy’s own N’Spire.

Gospel sensation, six-member Kendrick and Renew’d will offer two afternoon performances on the Community Stage, and other local talent will also perform.

Tallahassee sketch artists will be participating in a world-wide “Sketch Crawl,” sketching on-site throughout the day, then sharing their sketches with other artists around the world. All interested sketchers are welcome to participate.

Visitors will also be able to tour the historic district on Segways provided by Segway of Tallahassee. Damfino’s café, market and bakery will host a beer garden outside their café, in view of the main stage. The festival will also include arts and crafts vendors and free art activities for children.

All venues are within easy walking distance of the downtown Courthouse Square. Visitors can pick up the schedule the day of the event at the Quincy Main Street table.

The festival is a partnership between Quincy Main Street, the City of Quincy, the Gadsden Arts Center and Museum, the Quincy Music Theater, First Baptist Church Quincy and Damfino’s Café, Market and Bakery. Quincyfest and Porchfest is a family-friendly event and is free to the public.
