Last year’s Oakhurst Porchfest showcased 134 unique performances and we called it “a doozy.” Not sure what word’s appropriate now.
Presenting the line up for 2016 — 185 (!) performances on an equal number of porches, spread across a full six hours.
Like last year, we’ll have old-skool printed programs (available soon so stay tuned) matched with a Google Map showing porches, performers, times, food, and performer descriptions. Build your performance wish list on your computer or fire it up on your phone as you walk around and experience other stuff along the way. Here’s all you need to do:
On a Desktop
Your browser window will show both the menu and the map. Notice how the menu is broken up by category layers — times and logistics — that you can turn on or off. Working directly with the map, you can zoom in and see all artists for any particular street or area, color coded to reflect the time they’re playing. Click any performer and you’ll get specific details in the menu. Or, using the menu, click the drop-down arrow under each time slot and you’ll get the full list of performers. Clicking any particular one shows you their location on the map and gives you their details.
On Your Phone
Access the link using your phone’s browser. When the map appears, you’ll notice a white bar at the bottom labeled “Oakhurst Porchfest 2016.” Tap that bar and you get the menu. From there, it works pretty much just like on the desktop.
It’s that simple. So go check it out yourself now at www.tinyurl.com/oakhurstporchfest2016 and start planning your afternoon.
See you October 8!
