From the Porch – A Performing Arts Series

Our multicultural performing arts series returns!

Now in our fourth incredible year of this series, the inclusive programming will take place on our 152-acre campus. These experiential events are open to audiences of all ages.

In keeping with the Pope-Riddle family’s tradition of bringing literary, musical, and educational opportunities to the community, Hill-Stead’s From the Porch not only brings arts to the public but acts as a fundraiser for the Museum to sustain the dynamic cultural destination well into the future.

From the Porch events scheduled to date are listed below and in our Calendar. Check back often as programs will be added throughout the summer and as long as the fair weather lasts!
