Best Local Front Porch Happy Hour Movement To Go National: Front Porch Pours

During the pandemic, AGAR — the Over-the-Rhine creative marketing and event agency known for its work on local experiences including the Ubahn Fest, BLINK, Danger Wheel and more — invited neighbors from across the city to head to their front porches for a socially distant happy hour hang-out. Named Front Porch Pours, the event garnered more participation than anticipated, with over 5,000 people total and over 200 from locations ranging from Florida to Italy. So they decided to do a second Front Porch Pours, this time encouraging folks to invite their friends and family from across the nation. Porch Pourers could RSVP online to get a themed party kit and tag their photos across social media.
