    Party on the Porch returns to the Amon Carter Museum of American Art for the third year Saturday from 6 to 10 p.m. with more sound, more food and more Fort Worth! The community is invited to attend this free event with art, live music, food trucks and cash bars.

    Outside on the plaza, partygoers can listen to three exciting bands with local roots — Green River Ordinance, Matt Tedder Trio and Summer Dean — dive in to Fort Worth’s delicious food-truck fare, and purchase beer and wine.

    The porch will light up throughout the evening with special effects provided by Inside Image Design. Pan Ector is back by popular demand with their Fort Worth-themed T-shirts that are screenprinted onsite.

    The live music kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with the self-styled “AmeriTonk” sound of the soulful country artist Summer Dean. She is followed by the Matt Tedder Trio, whose music blends classic rock, blues and modern folk. Headlining Party on the Porch is Green River Ordinance with their grounded sound of country, rock, pop and folk.

    Extended gallery and Museum Store hours (until 9 p.m.) allow guests to enjoy the artwork inside and have time to shop. Docents will be on hand giving tours for those who prefer a guided art experience; artmaking will also be offered.

    Free parking is available at the UNT Health Science Center lot and east garage on Clifton Street (north of the museum.) For more information about Party on the Porch, parking and accessibility, call 817-989-5030 or email visitors@cartermuseum.org.

The Amon Carter will close at 5:00 p.m. and reopen for Party on the Porch at 6 p.m. Please no pets or outside food or drink.
