The Grand Porch Party is a free music festival held on the front porches of homes in Uptown West Waterloo. If you can get down a sidewalk, you can attend this free, fabulous event that was named Waterloo Region Arts Award Best New Festival in 2012.

Entirely community-made, the GPP is an afternoon of awesomeness held each year from 2pm to 5pm on the second Sunday in June — which is Canadian Rivers Day!

This is an afternoon of community, music and environment for anyone and everyone. Dreamed up by Uptown West resident Tenille Bonoguore, the GPP was launched as a pure experiment in 2011. Since then, it has become a highlight of the city calendar.
