Quincy Porchfest October 22, 2016!
Quincy Main Street presents the 5th annual Quincy Porchfest & Sketch Crawl, Saturday, October 22nd, from 1 to 6 pm. Visitors can wander the tree-lined streets of downtown Quincy's Historic District while enjoying a wide variety of music ranging from Opera to Big Band. Gospel, Soft Rock, Classical, Country, Blues and Jazz will be featured on shaded porches and courtyards, including free jazz concerts by the TCC Jazz Band and the Thursday Night Music Club on the historic Art Deco Leaf Theater stage. Come sketch with artists, hop a ride on a Segway, visit the Gadsden Arts Center and Museum, or just simply stroll through one of North Florida's loveliest towns in beautiful, historic downtown Quincy!
Tallahassee sketch artists lead by Mark Fletcher 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.
Tallahassee Segway Tours is offering free rides to patrons and season ticket holders of the Quincy Music Theater. Visitors who buy a Quincy Music Theater ticket during Porchfest can also ride for free.
An added Porchfest treat this year will be “Karaoke with Fred” held in front of the future Damfino’s Café and Market at 18 North Adams Street. Join Fred Harris in a fun sing-along and get a sneak-peek inside Damfino’s to see the 100-year old advertising sign uncovered during renovations.
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 office, 5 N. Madison St., Quincy, FL. Porchfest is a family-friendly event and is free to the public.
Quincy Porchfest is sponsored by Quincy Main Street, Inc. in partnership with the Gadsden Arts Center, the Quincy Music Theater and the Quincy Garden Center. Quincy Porchfest is sponsored in part by the Gadsden County Tourism Development Council and Visit Florida.
