Rockport Exchange regrets to announce that the annual Motif No. 1 Day Festival will not be held as scheduled on May 16th, 2020.

With the circumstances surrounding the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, we feel that the best course is to continue to focus on the health and safety of members of our community here on Cape Ann and beyond. We will be sure to follow the guidelines of the CDC and the WHO as they work with federal, state, and local officials to assess protocols for gathering in public spaces in the coming months.

While it is disappointing to not be able to come together in person to celebrate Rockport at the annual M1D Fest, we hope to connect with you online with some Motif-themed virtual events as May approaches. We’ll post programming updates here on our website, as well as on Instagram and Facebook. And please subscribe to our email newsletter through our website or by emailing rockportexchange01966@gmail.com.

Thank you for your efforts in strengthening our community during this difficult time, and we look forward to celebrating Motif No.1, Rockport’s beloved and iconic fishing shack, for many years to come. Be well and stay in touch.


May 16, 2020 FROM 9AM TO 5PM

About the festival

M1D focuses on honoring Rockport’s heritage and future in the arts.

The Motif No.1 Day Festival celebrates Rockport! Poetry, dance, art, live music, interactive art, a 5k & Fun Run, local food (wood-fired pizza, grass-fed burgers and more!), small-batch craft beer and Massachusetts wine — all of it in honor of the red fishing shack that is known around the world as Motif No.1.

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.
