Front Porch Wichita is a placemaking project that will extend storefronts and restaurants out into the sidewalk and integrate art and culture into the business. This may include outdoor seating, plantings, retail displays, art installations, elements of sanitization and safety, etc.

If the business front does not allow enough room for a front porch, one may be erected on the ground or on a moveable trailer (parklet) and placed in front of the business in one or multiple parking spaces. This project is lead by Downtown Wichita in partnership with the City of Wichita and is funded in part by the Our Town Placemaking Grant from the National Endowment from the Arts.
