The Public Option is literally center stage at RIA-NE's Porchfest this year! Local porches and stoops are transformed into stages for an afternoon of music, dance, and poetry that brings together neighbors, business owners, and artists in a casual and fun display of creative expression!
Through the years, Rhode Island Avenue NE has been home to a variety of live music venues, including The Public Option, which was once Mr. Y’s Jazz Club at 16th & Rhode Island Ave NE.
Porch Fest continues that tradition as local porches and stoops are transformed into stages for an afternoon of FREE PERFORMANCE.
This is a RAIN or SHINE event that includes performances on porches (business and residential) that are suitable for the entire family.
