FAMILY ACTIVITIES

North Liberty Porchfest offers FREE programming for the entire family to take part in while enjoying a day filled with music. (2018 Schedule is subject to change)

  • New Orleans-style Second Line Parade: Line up at 2:30 pm at Penn Meadows parking lot and follow the Backroad Brass band down the walking path to Porchfest! Just like in New Orleans, the band leads and everyone jumps in line to become part of the parade; dancing the whole way! There will be kid-sized instruments, marching batons, ribbon streamers, pom-poms and other fun accessories handed out to all attendees until they’re gone. Plus, a coupon for a free treat for all who participate!

  • Giant Xylophone Make your own music on the giant PVC pipe xylophone using rubber flappers and flip-flops
