Front Porch Easter Vigil
Date and Time
Saturday, April 15th
1607 San Jacinto Blvd.
Ausin, TX 78701
Featuring a slew of Austin artists plugged into a one-of-a-kind, fluid liturgy developed by Front Porch director Stephen Kinney and other closely-tied thinkers and clergy, The Front Porch Easter Vigil kicks off promptly at sunset (7:59 PM) the evening before Easter. This year, we’ll once again gather at Scholz Garten to witness this unique convergence of brilliant minds and beautiful voices, all raised to celebrate the mystery of death and new life presented to us by the Easter story. RSVP for free now at cohoevents.com/frontporchvigil17 to reserve your spot: keep in mind that we will ask everyone for a donation (suggestion: $10 per person) during the event to help us pay the artists the living wages that we guarantee.
This year, our performers include: Body Rock ATX (Riders Against the Storm + DJ Chorizo Funk), Kevin Russell of Shinyribs, Sam Baker, Rabbi Neil Blumofe, Brant Pope, Jimi Calhoun, Gregory Eaton, improvisors from The New Movement Theatre, Chucky Black, Sherry Gingras and the Djembabes, and many others. True to our Front Porch roots, this Easter Vigil proudly welcomes all creeds and beliefs to our table for communion at the end of the gathering, welcoming all into the final celebration: the after-Vigil dance party produced and directed by the legendary BODY ROCK ATX!
This year, the Easter Vigil is a joint production of: The Front Porch, St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, All Saints’ Episcopal Church, Episcopal Student Center at UT-Austin, and Interfaith Action Central Texas (IACT).
