A M1D Thank You!!!

Thanks so much to all the volunteers, donors, festival-goers, and performers who made Motif No. 1 Day such a fun, interactive, arts-focused day! From the 5K for Rockport Public Schools in the morning to the Rockport Art Colony’s pop-up exhibit at night, the day was a great celebration of Rockport’s iconic motif.

Gearing up for the M1D Festival!

Now that March is here, our thoughts turn to the Motif No.1 Day Festival, just a few short months away. The award winning Motif No.1 Day 5K & Fun Run is back, with proceeds from the race benefitting Health & Wellness initiatives at Rockport Schools.

Plenty of arts programming is back too, with dance, theater, film, literary events, visual arts and more. M1D focuses on interactive elements, so festival-goers can make art as well as experience it.

Interested in volunteering with the M1D team? Get in touch at info@rockportexchange.org. We would love to have you join us, whether as part of the planning process leading up to the festival or on the day itself.
