Sat, June 2|5:00pm - 9:00pm Free
Mark your calendars for Porch Fest -- a unique FREE live music festival now in its third year hosted by the new home community of Tucker Hill on Saturday, June 2, 2018, from 5 p.m. until dusk. This open-to-the-public event will feature live bands staged (from 5 to 7 pm) on at least six of Tucker Hill’s quaint front porches that surround the community’s central park area, known as Founders Square, as well as along Fitzgerald Avenue leading to our new model homes.
The evening highlight is a 7 pm concert-on-the-lawn featuring Random Axis. This eight-member band has been performing throughout Texas and surrounding states for over 20 years. They feature five vocalists, both male and female, and an extremely diverse song list from contemporary hits by artists of today, to 80s rock and 70s disco.
As attendees stroll the Tucker Hill neighborhood and enjoy front porch concerts, they can also enjoy a unique Car Show of classic, high end and exotic cars. Shoppers will enjoy perusing a pop-up Artisan’s market with almost 20 vendors and at least one “make-and-take kid’s craft (while supplies last). Food and drink will be available as guests can purchase wine-by-the-glass from local winery Caudalie Crest, and grab a picnic dinner or treats from food vendors including Mamacita’s, Cajun Made Crawfish & Seafood and Rita’s Italian Ice.
Porch Fest is a signature Southern Land Company community event and Tucker Hill’s version is modeled after the extremely successful Porch Fest 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 Porch Fest. Residents volunteer their porches as a way to support the local music scene and interact with their neighbors.
Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or chairs to set up as they stop to enjoy not only the porch bands, but also the main stage concert. Performance schedules, band bios, and a map showing where porch bands will be located will be available on www.TuckerHillTX.com. Signage will also be placed throughout the community to assist in finding our porch bands. Up-to-date event information may also be found on the Tucker Hill Facebook (www.facebook.com/TuckerHillTexas) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/TuckerHillTX) pages.
The community of Tucker Hill is located in McKinney, just north of Hwy. 380 between Ridge and Custer Roads. Our master builder partners include SLC Homebuilding, LLC, Darling Homes, and David Weekley Homes.
