The Sanford Historic Trust is a proud sponsor of this inaugural event:

The Sanford Historic Trust is proud to be a sponsor of Sanford's first annual Porchfest. This event is free and open to the public. Bring your own chairs, your own food and drink, and join in the fun with dozens of musicians and groups performing at porches in the Sanford Historic District. Check the Porchfest web site for more information. 

The Sanford Historic Trust is sponsoring a Porch (TBA) and will have a table set up to provide attendees with information about the work of the Trust. If you'd like to volunteer an hour of your time attending to the table, please let us know. It's only an hour and you can listen to some great music along the way, and spend time with your neighbors and friends.
