Nolan Park

Founded in 2014, Porch Stomp is a folk celebration unlike any other.Set on the beautiful greenery of Governors Island, Porch Stomp invites over 60 bands, artists, and performing arts organizations to utilize the historic porches of Nolan Park as a pulpit for performance and education, highlighting artistry ranging from traditional folk to old-time, blues, roots, bluegrass and Americana.The festival offers all-inclusive jams and educational opportunities for folks learning to play music. Dance is also a major part of Porch Stomp- throughout the afternoon, we host several participatory square dances, in addition to workshops where folks can learn basic steps. Porch Stomp has its roots as part of Make Music New York, a city-wide day of free outdoor music on the summer solstice.
