Porch Stomp 2022! 

Free and participatory celebration of American folk music on the porches of Governors Island 

June 18th, 2022, 11am-6pm 


In alignment with the reopening announcement for Governors Island, Porch Stomp is excited to announce plans for our annual festival. Set on the beautiful greenery of Governors Island, Porch Stomp invites dozens of folk bands, artists, and performing arts organizations to use the historic porches of Nolan Park as a space for performance and education, highlighting artistry ranging from traditional folk to old-time, blues, roots, bluegrass and Americana. 


Porch Stomp is a free, volunteer-run music celebration produced in association with Make Music New York, a not-for-profit that connects music makers, fans and the public spaces of New York City. Unlike typical music festivals, anyone can take part in Porch Stomp, and all events are free and open to the public. Now in its eighth year, Porch Stomp offers unique performance and educational opportunities, including concerts, workshops and open jams. Each “stage” or porch is curated and produced by an arts organization or local venue that supports traditional arts, and will represent a specific folk community in New York City.
