About Party on the Porch
Each Party on the Porch at our Homewood store focuses on giving back to our local community and raising environmental awareness for conservation, access, usage, and education. The event runs the first Friday of each month from April to October, from 6:00 – 8:30 PM except on our July Party on the Porch (July 12th) so everyone can enjoy July 4th.)
Party on the Porch brings together local musicians, breweries, food trucks, and artisans for a day of fun under the sun. This is a family-friendly event, with kids, dogs, corn hole, and loads of comradery. Attendance is free, but we ask that of-age attendees donate $10 for a refillable souvenir cup to enjoy great beer donated from a local brewery.
Net proceeds from your donations at our October event go to Homewood City Schools Foundation.

Vandoliers – American Alternative Country from Dallas TX
An alt-country band with punk roots, Vandoliers put a rough-edged spin on Texas music. It’s twang and tattoos, grit and guitars, honky-tonk and horns, Tejano and Telecasters. It’s Vandoliers.
Sylvia Rose Novak – Folk Rock / Americana from Birmingham AL
“A TINY WOMAN WITH A HUGE PRESENCE.”
Sylvia Rose Novak has been called “a musician in a class all her own”. Whether she’s fronting her band as her own bass player, producing her own albums, or improvising five-part fiddle arrangements, it’s hard to deny that Novak is not your average songwriter.
