The event began in 2020 as a way for residents of Flint to exit the home safely during the COVID-19 lockdown, Porchfest organizer Kady Yellow said.
âArt, music and creativity are powerful healing tools,â she said. âIt’s time to come together for the first time in over a year and reward our senses through multisensory experiences, that’s what you’ll discover in both spaces.
Residents were encouraged to bring their own food and drink, chairs and blankets to sit on during performances.
The event included garden games, face painting, yoga, a poet for hire, a food truck, and visual art exhibits.
