In 2014, the Harrison Center began encouraging people to gather on their porches with friends and neighbors, to share food and drink and to help cultivate a sense of community in our urban neighborhoods. Since that time, the popularity of "porching" has soared. In 2016, through a partnership with the Indianapolis 500, the Porch Party movement grew to include the entire state of Indiana, and hundreds have joined in the fun.
