Porch Stomp was founded in 2014 by Nicholas Horner as a part of the 2014 Make Music New York Festival. Featuring a variety of acts and institutions, Porch Stomp immediately became recognized as a hub for cross-genre folk musicians and folk music lovers to share in celebration a day of music and fun. Today, Porch Stomp has expanded to include over 200 acts and functions by way of a 100% volunteer-run team of artists and community builders. Porch Stomp is fiscally sponsored by Make Music New York, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization; all contributions are 100% tax deductible.
