It was an incredibly tough choice and we are so grateful for the amazing artwork submitted for the 2020 design.

The Producers took three major needs into consideration when picking a winner: 1) how does the design translate for merchandise, graphics and print needs 2) does it compliment our corporate branding and 3) clear visibility of messaging attached to it.

While all three were incredible, we chose the below design by Kari Petchse of Color Punch Creative as the best design for our top three needs. Kari has designed graphics for major music groups such as Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Life is Beautiful Festivals, Chvrches the band among countless other projects.

Was your favorite design not picked? Don’t fret! We may have something up our sleeves for the other fan favorites 😏.

Huge thank you to all the artists who submitted!!

SAVE THE DATE SANFORD PORCHFEST 2020

We're singing from the Porch Steps! Thanks to people like you, we are able to donate $7,000 worth of performing art summer camp tuition back into our community! That is 7x the amount collected our first year [WOAH]. Give yourself a round of applause -- WE did this!

 

The funds* will be allocated to two different programs:

  •  Partnering with Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center, tuition fees of select children will be covered for the Junior and Senior Sounds of Broadway Summer Camp Series, which works with the children to produce a full-scale production; both programs take place at the WDPAC in downtown, Sanford

  • Partnering with Central Florida Community Arts, two separate week-long summer camp programs which introduce children to performing arts, visual arts, and music theory, as well as feeds them three meals a day will be funded; both programs take place at the Westside Community Center located within Historic Goldsboro

  • All together, we will reach 180 children that may not have had access to the arts otherwise.

 

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for supporting our mission and being the ultimate fan!

 

All our love, 
Team Sanford Porchfest

 

*Zero funds were gifted / reimbursed for administrative costs, to the producers, artists, homeowners, or volunteers. All funds after festival costs are donated back to our community.

SANFORD PORCHFEST 2019 THANKS YOU.

We at Sanford Porchfest are humbled and deeply grateful for the opportunity to donate all of our 2018 proceeds to the Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center. During our very first year, we are able to gift $1,000 worth of summer camp tuition! This donation will fund scholarships to their Sounds of Broadway summer camp series for local children that may not have access to the arts otherwise. Thank you, all of our sponsors, bands, attendees, and friends who made this happen. We look forward to bigger and better in 2019! Didn't have a chance to donate? We are still collecting tax-deductible donations through our paypal.

THANK YOU SANFORD WE LOVE OUR COMMUNITY SANFORD PORCHFEST 2018
