Carmel PorchFest features live music on front doorsteps

The event is meant to bring the community together through music and art.

CARMEL, Ind. — Sunday in Carmel featured a unique event meant to bring the community together. 

The 10th annual "PorchFest" was held Sept. 17. The family-friendly event featured dozens of musical acts from a wide range of styles, all playing on people's front porches. 

One neighbor told 13News that it's a way to get to know their community and one that everyone seems to enjoy. 

"I've never heard one complaint. It's just always a joy to be out here with the neighbors and sharing our space," a neighbor said. "We have an arts district, and a lot of people put their good art out too, so it's fun!" 

Carmel isn't the only community offering this kind of event. The first time such an event was held was in Ithaca, New York, in 2007. 

Since then, gatherings like this have spread to cities across the country.
