Knottsville Porch Fest

Knottsville will have its own Porch Fest on May 25, with five homes opening their lawns and porches to a total of 10 musical acts throughout the evening.

All the homes will be located on KY 144, as organizers hope to bring the community together and celebrate local talent.

Organizer Kathy Hagan said she didn’t know how many artist applications she’d receive and was pleased with the outcome.

“I got a lot more than I realized. Some people were just asking me, ‘Can we perform?’ and we welcomed them, so we ended up with 10 performers and five porches,” Hagan said.

Hagan noted that they tried to keep all homes on the same side of the road to avoid people crossing KY 144. The highway will still be open to traffic during the event.

The first round of shows will start at 6 p.m. on all five of the porches, and the second group of performers will go on at 8 p.m.

  • Daviess County Line

Porch 2 – Tom’s Hell & Ice Porch (9334 KY 144)

  • Logan Boarman & Matt Morris
  • Jeff Johnson-Old State Road

Porch 3 – Danny & Anne Howard’s Porch (9454 KY 144)

  • Gavin Howard
  • Dakota Hayden

Porch 4 – Church Parking Lot (9546 KY 144)

  • Bob Stallings & Friends

Porch 5 – Kenny & Benita Turner’s Porch (9614 KY 144)

  • Parker McManaway
  • Katelyn & Jesse Kaysinger

“We have a lot of talented people up here, and everybody loves a good night of music. It just brings the community together,” Hagan said.

In addition to music, the church parking lot will sell hot dogs, burgers, and pork nachos. Kona Ice and other food trucks will be in attendance. Hagan said they will sell T-shirts as well.

Organizers ask that all guests park in the larger of the two lots at St. William Catholic Church at 9545 KY 144 or at the Knottsville gym. If it rains, Hagan said the event will be canceled.
