Playing on the Porch returns


Playing on the Porch, the popular community-wide musical showcase returns to the porches, lawns, and driveways of Rockville Centre for its third year on Saturday, September 17 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Rain date is Sunday, September 18.

While similar events are held throughout the country, Rockville Centre is the first and only community on Long Island to host the event. More than two-dozen bands and soloists have already signed up to perform. The event is free but donations are collected at “tip jars” located at each of the home venues, which will go to support a local charity. This year, donations will go to the RVC Library Friends.

The Rockville Centre Chamber of Commerce will present the annual event with additional support from local businesses who have registered as “porch patrons” and sponsor a home. Maps featuring participating homes will be available online at
