The PorchFest phenomenon started in Ithaca and has spread across the nation. The Binghamton Porchfest is celebrated this weekend around the West Side of Binghamton. The number of bands and porches has grown since its inaugural festival last year. It’s free, and audiences are invited to stroll around the neighborhood to listen to music from noon until 7pm. Booklets with a map and schedule are available to guide listeners to the 26 porches and at least 89 bands. Organizer Chris Bodnarczuk gives us more details.
