CRANFORD - The 4th Annual Cranford Porchfest returns Saturday, October 10 with bands rocking and rolling all over town. 

Ten homes will host three bands each from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., followed by a grand finale show at 5:30 p.m. Bands will play music from a variety of genres, and most are New Jersey locals to boot. All locations will be announced shortly. 

Due to this year’s pandemic, safety, as with all Cranford Community Connection events, will be the top priority, and the organization will be working hand-in-hand with the Cranford Police Department and the Office of Emergency Management for this year’s event.

Given the state safety protocols for social gatherings, and closing of blocks, it is required everyone social distance and wear a mask for public safety. There will also be specific instructions for homeowners, and the Cranford Community Connection team will monitor social distancing and use of masks.

While some spectators traipse from one porch to another checking out their favorite bands and others park themselves with friends on a single lawn for hours of live music, this year a virtual component will be added for those who are unable or uncomfortable to attend in person. A live Facebook stream in conjunction with Virtual Cranford will be provided.
