Blenman-Elm Neighborhood Porch Fest on March 29 (updated flyer)



Blenman-Elm neighborhood is north of Speedway, south of Grant Rd, between Campbell and Tucson Blvd. We’ve been to a few porch fests in the past at the Dunbar Springs and Broadmoor/Broadway neighborhoods. Enjoy spring and all this music on the porches of welcoming neighbors.
