Front Porch Stage

The Front Porch Stage produces free “lawn chair concerts.” Concerts are scheduled regularly from the first Saturday in May through the first week in October. Because this is an outdoor event, concerts are subject to cancellation due to inclement weather.

The musical genres represented include country, bluegrass, blues, folk, folk rock, and gospel, with a special emphasis on original music. Money donated in a “pass the hat” collection is given to bands that perform. Sales of souvenirs, snack bar profits, and donations make up the general revenue that is used to support the musical programs in the county’s schools.

An all-volunteer staff operates the stage, as well as the Back Porch Kitchen and the “Possum Store.” Possums Unlimited, an auxiliary of the MCFPS, organizes Possum Picnic and Parade, an annual fundraising event. The Possum Picnic takes place each September at the Front Porch Stage.
