Volunteer Opportunities
Adams Morgan PorchFest, Saturday, October 5, 2019

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for an afternoon of neighborhood fun at the 7th Annual Adams Morgan PorchFest! As a partner of Adams Morgan Partnership BID, Cultural Tourism DC is excited to work with the volunteers for this annual event. The event will be Saturday, October 5, 2019, from 2:00 pm to 6:00 PM.


The Adams Morgan PorchFest is a terrific opportunity to hear great music while meeting new people and patronizing local businesses. The event features porches/patios as performance space for local musicians.  As a PorchFest volunteer, you will greet guests at a performance location, acknowledge program sponsors, introduce the performers, and count the number of people enjoying the music.  We also may ask Volunteers to help staff set-up and break-down the PorchFest Information Hub and place signs throughout the neighborhood. 


To help you understand your role during PorchFest, we will host an orientation, date to be determined, which we encourage you to attend. If you cannot attend the in-person orientation, we will also host a conference call, date to be determined.


Volunteers must attend an orientation, the date of which will be sent to once you sign-up and select your shift(s).
