Peninsula’s Music on the Porches!

This years Music on the Porches will be held on
September 26th.

It is the seventh year of this village wide happening which celebrates music, art and culture in the Valley!  

Merchants and residents throughout the Village of Peninsula,welcome musicians to their porches to
“make a joyful noise” and fill the valley
with music of all genres throughout the day and into the evening.

A village wide event, brought to you through a collaboration between
Peninsula Area Chamber of Commerce,
Peninsula Foundation, and with financial support from the Ohio Arts Council.  We welcome you to stop by, take a workshop, bring your favorite picnic blanket or chair to sit and listen to music, take in a concert, visit our shops and galleries, come spend a day in our village!

This year we will add local food vendors so you can grab something to eat while catching your favorite song.  Monies from the Ohio Art Council will be used to sponsor interactive and educational workshops at The Bronson Church.

The G.A.R. Hall will host an evening concert featuring The Speedbumps! This event is Sold Out!  Thanks so much to everyone who purchased tickets in advance!
