The 6th Annual Front Porch Fest
The festival is produced by a group of family, friends and funsters inspired by the idea that life is enriched
by art, with music at its soul. Lovers of music come together in an intimate outdoor setting where the distinction between artist and audience is blurred. Local, regional and national musicians showcase their talent on two stages with no overlapping sets so that you never have to miss a beat. Front Porch Fest is a family friendly event, so bring the kids! They can groove to the tunes while doing arts & crafts in the Children's Area. There is an Awareness Village, which provides information on different causes that are important to the area. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to camp with us! There is both field and woods camping on site, with food and merchandise vendors to help make your weekend more enjoyable.
The festival takes place at Spirit Haven Farm. Spirit Haven Farm is located on a 130 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Stuart, Virginia. For the Eutsler family, it is the realization of a dream. Spirit Haven Farm is named for the knack it has of making its inhabitants feel at peace. Spirit Haven is a working farm where several species of uncommon animals are raised; St. Croix sheep, Myotonic or "Tennessee Fainting" goats, blue-egg-laying Americana chickens, acrobatic Breslauer Tumbler and Birmingham Roller pigeons. Visitors to Spirit Haven will also see horses and peafowl roaming the property along with their less-domesticated neighbors, White-tailed deer, turkey, bobcats and the occasional Black bear. The Eustler family can't help but share this land and the energy is emanates with like-minded folks. They sometimes offer workshops and retreats that emphasize Arts and Music. Their main yearly event is Darbukastani Independence Days, a four-day festival based around Central Asian music and dance, drawing people from many different corners of the world. They also host smaller local events featuring Bluegrass, Folk and Celtic music and dance. We are elated to be able to call Spirit Haven Farm home to Front Porch Fest and emphatically thank the Eutsler's for everything they do!
FpF is a Non-profit festival. Proceeds from the festival are donated to the Patrick County Food Bank. We think it's more important to give back to the community and Front Porch Fest is our way of making the planet a better place. The awareness Village is always looking for a good cause to promote, so let us know of any special efforts in and around the area. we strive to make you feel at home and at peace. We think you'll agree that Front Porch Fest is like no other.
