Mark your calendars for PorchFest -- a unique live music festival hosted by the new home community of Tucker Hill on Saturday, May 7, 2016, from 5 p.m. until dusk. This free event will feature musicians staged on several of Tucker Hill’s quaint front porches that surround the community’s central park area, known as Founders Square. The evening highlight is a concert-on-the-lawn featuring Infinite Journey, a Dallas-based Journey Tribute Band who opened for Loverboy and Kool and the Gang at the 2014 Wildflower Festival in Richardson, TX. As attendees stroll the Tucker Hill neighborhood and enjoy front porch concerts, they can also peruse a vintage home décor market, enjoy a complimentary wine tasting hosted by McKinney’s Mitas Hill Vineyard, grab a free Mooyah hamburger (for the first 500), support the HOA Bake Sale, pose for a professional photo with or for mom, and make a Mother’s Day craft. The entire event is family friendly, open to the public and FREE of charge. PorchFest is a signature Southern Land Company community event and Tucker Hill’s version is modeled after the extremely successful PorchFest held annually in Franklin, Tennessee’s, Westhaven community. With a simple concept -- invite the musicians and provide them their stages on residents’ front porches -- bands and acoustic singers will showcase their talent during PorchFest. Residents volunteer their porches as a way to support the local music scene and interact with their neighbors. Porch band performances and all activities will begin at 5:00 pm. Infinite Journey will be closing out the evening with a concert-on-the-lawn beginning at 7:00pm and concluding at dusk. See website for performance schedules and for a map to Tucker Hill. Up-to-date event information may also be found on the Tucker Hill Facebook and Twitter pages. In the event of inclement weather, this event will be re-scheduled. Event-goers encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs, picnics, etc. for enjoying the concerts.
