If you’ve never experienced The Front Porch Easter Vigil before, it’s truly a one-of-a-kind experience. Join us as representatives of faith communities all over Austin come together with a number of our city’s finest artists to celebrate one of Christianity’s greatest gifts and insights: the emergence of life from the dead, of light from the dark.

This year’s Vigil will feature live music from some of our city’s finest musicians, spoken word from some of our city’s strongest voices, religious traditions from some of our finest faith leaders, food, drink, a call to open table Communion to those of all beliefs, dancing, socializing, and so much more. Don’t miss out on the biggest night of the year on the Front Porch.

The 2019 Front Porch Easter Vigil is sponsored by All Saints’ Episcopal Church, St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, St. George’s Episcopal Church, The Episcopal Church of the Resurrection, The “Soul of a Musician” Series, Kevin Russell, and The Front Porch.
