The festival, which promised to fill Adams Morgan porches with street performers this weekend, will now take place on Oct. 24 between 2 and 6 p.m.
Adams Morgan Partnership BID executive director Kristen Barden informed future attendees of the schedule change earlier this afternoon on Facebook.
“Unfortunately, the weather is not cooperating for PorchFest this Saturday,” Barden wrote.
Though it may be easy to assume the cancellation is related to the possibly forthcoming Hurricane Joaquin, Barden said that’s not entirely the case.
“The prediction is that it’s going to be a very wet weekend,” Barden said. “That forecast in itself was too much. Electricity and water just don’t mix.”
So far, the change hasn’t led to widespread performance cancellations. “There’s just one porch that won’t be able to do it on the 24th,” Barden said. “We should still have 16-17 porches.”
