Motif No. 1 Day

2019 Festival Information 

May 18, 2019 FROM 9AM TO 5PM
T-WHARF AND THROUGHOUT DOWNTOWN ROCKPORT, MASSACHUSETTS

About the festival

The Motif No.1 Day Festival celebrates Rockport across the arts!

M1D honors the fishing shack, artist’s studio, and tourist attraction that started it all: an old building right on one of Rockport’s historic wharves, a building painted so often by artists at the turn of the last century that it was given the nickname Motif No.1.

Featuring film, poetry, dance, music, art-making activities, historical presentations and more, along with the Motif No.1 Day 5k and Fun Run, (organized by the Rockport Public Schools’ WELL team), M1D is truly a community festival.

M1D focuses on honoring Rockport’s heritage of the arts, along with showcasing the arts in today’s Rockport.
