FESTIVAL 

2022 EVENT INFORMATION

Hohner Avenue will not be closed for the 2022 event. 

We do love our closed street format, but this year in order to keep folks comfortable and distanced, we've decided to forgo closing Hohner Ave. 

Instead our concerts will be popping up on Chapel Street, Brubacher Street, Samuel Street and of course, Hohner Ave.  


Every year the Hohner Ave Porch Party showcases local performances and celebrates CREATIVE COMMUNITY building.
 People from our neighbourhood and beyond come to enjoy music, art, food 
and beautiful Central Frederick, Kitchener. 


THE HOHNER AVE PORCH PARTY (HAPP) ATTRACTS PERFORMERS OF EVERY AGE, GENRE, AND EXPERIENCE; FROM SCHOOL CHOIRS AND GARAGE BANDS TO FINE TUNED PROFESSIONALS.

HAPP IS ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC AND THE MUSICIANS THAT MAKE IT
EVERY YEAR WE ARE BLOWN AWAY BY THE SUPPORT OF LOCAL MUSICIANS. IT'S JUST AN AMAZING TESTAMENT TO HOW PEOPLE CAN BUILD GOOD THINGS TOGETHER.

EVERY YEAR OUR FESTIVAL STRIVES TO STAY LITTLE BUT THINK BIG.

 

Washrooms

There will be a wheelchair accessible Port-a-Potty located at the corner of Samuel and Brubacher and in the Bethany Church parking lot during the event for public use.

Please remember that this is a family event, and please try to keep the provided washrooms clean.

Special THANKS to the City of Kitchener for helping fund this awesome festival.

Inspired by the great Central Frederick Neighbourhood Association (CFNA) tradition of community events, the number of artists and performers in the neighbourhood, and the success of a Waterloo-based Porch Party, members of CFNA came together to plan the first Hohner Avenue Porch Party in 2013. This event was a great success, so we decided to keep going and see where it takes us!
