Meet the Carmel PorchFest Board

This team works hard to continue to grow Carmel PorchFest and all of the Carmel PorchFest Inc. events.  Since 2018 we have added such events such as Holiday PorchFest, Late Night on Main, provided entertainment and promotional efforts for the White River Clean up, Artomobilia, Art of Wine and Shamrock the District. Our vision and commitment continue to grow each year and we are working to build the Carmel PorchFest Foundation, to give back to youth in the community with musical aspirations.

Joshua Kirsh – President of  Carmel PorchFest since 2018. A longtime resident of Carmel and father of Holden (aka Duke) one of the coolest kids in town, Josh was named OneZones Volunteer of the Year in 2021 for his volunteer efforts with organizations such as CarmelFest, Christkindlemarkt, Artomobilia, Bike Carmel and of course Carmel PorchFest, Inc.

Liz Yust – Treasurer of Carmel PorchFest. Liz is a wife and mother of three wild hooligans (ages 3, 6 and 9). Volunteering her time as Carmel PorchFest Inc. Treasurer since 2018, she makes sure the bills get paid on time and ensures we’re being smart with our money to reinvest back to the community with more music-filled events. She works at Engage Mentoring, a leadership and employee development company, as their Regional Sales Director.   

Sondra Schwieterman – Executive Director. Sondra is the glue that holds the team together, organizing the chaos into manageable projects. Sondra is a wife and mother, as well as the owner of Sweet Event Planning. Sondra is a freelance Event Planner for many of the events that take place in Carmel. Nearest and dearest to her heart is Carmel PorchFest. She has been a part of the team since 2018 and has gone from planning one event to five, along with booking the entertainment at our other subsequent events.
