Live Music on Front Porches


An outdoor music festival in a historic neighbourhood.

An outdoor event hosted in one of Medicine Hat’s most historic neighbourhoods, PorchFest invites local musicians to perform on front lawns and porches throughout the Southeast Hill.

The quaint neighborhood is full of century-old homes and beautiful boulevards, where people can walk, bike, e-scoot, or skateboard from home to home to bask in the fresh air and watch the wholesome, live performances.

“PorchFest is designed in its nature to be as accessible, open, and inclusive as possible. It’s a great way for everyone to experience live music outdoors in a way that hasn’t yet been introduced to Medicine Hat. It’s amazing to see the Hill lit up with families, friends, and couples, year after year, smiling and being happy.” - Rob Pape, organizer of PorchFest with his wife, Shannon.

On August 31, 2024, visitors and residents can house-hop from performance to performance throughout the day, with lawn chairs, snacks, water, and their furry friends. The event is donation-based.
