Welcome to San Rafael PorchFest 2022!

We are so happy to be back!

Thanks to all of our volunteers, sponsors, our city liaisons, the food and drink vendors, the generous neighbors who host us and especially to the musicians who perform for free! We love San Rafael! Remember to tip the musicians, buy their merch and show them some love!

Bike, Walk or Shuttle

To ease the burden of traffic and parking in the neighborhood, participants are encouraged to bike or walk. Additionally, Vivalon (formerly Whistlestop) will be running (2) handicap accessible shuttles between the City of San Rafael’s parking lot on C St. @ 3rd St., the parking lot at 711 D St. (btw 1st and 2nd) and the D St. @ Bayview entrance of the Porch Zone, from 11am to 6pm. Both parking and the Vivalon Shuttle will be FREE. Free parking will also be available after 12:30 at the San Rafael Community Center on B St. Self-park bike stations will be available throughout the event.
