Spearheaded by locally lauded singer/songwriter Amy Elizabeth, PorchFest is taking over this small town in a big way. This inaugural event features poets and songwriters from throughout New Jersey performing on porches around the town. The idea for Tuckerton PorchFest was first inspired by similar events in other towns across the country, where musicians and poets would perform on porches and front yards, turning these spaces into intimate and welcoming stages. The community of Tuckerton saw the potential for this event to bring people together and showcase the talent of local artists, and thus the first Tuckerton PorchFest was born.

This festival is not just about the music and poetry, but also about supporting the small businesses in the town. Most of the porches and front yards that serve as stages are owned by local shops, restaurants, and galleries, and more, giving these businesses a chance to showcase their products and services to a large audience while also supporting the arts.

Not only will PorchFest bring people together, but it will also promote a sense of inclusivity and diversity. The festival features artists from various genres, ages, and backgrounds, showcasing the diversity of the local community. This inclusivity is also reflected in the festival's accessibility, as it is free and open to all.
