Another Year in the Books: A Look Back at Porch Fest 2023

There are a lot of reasons to love Amesbury in the summer and fall but Porch Fest is at the top of our list. (Followed closely by the donut and pumpkin patch situation at Cider Hill Farm.)

Look, we know we might be biased but when it comes to kid and pup-friendly events that are intended to empower the community, we’re pretty dang proud of what Porch Fest has become. Since its inception in 2021, we’ve loved watching the event go from a low-key evening of outdoor brews and tunes into a tri-annual hyper-local event that highlights just how incredibly talented, collaborative, supportive and FUN the Amesbury community is.

Scroll down to take a look back at our 2023 Porch Fest season. We’ve got epic photos from Kate Donovan Photography as well as links to a few of the many makers, bakers, brewers and musicians that made Porch Fest extra special this year. You can also learn more about how to get in touch to be part of next year’s fun!
