Celebrate the Motif in May!

While we can’t come together for the Motif No.1 Day in the traditional way, we can still celebrate the Motif! Join organizations and businesses throughout Rockport in honoring our iconic fishing shack. And be sure to purchase your  collectible 2021 Motif poster.

This year’s poster theme is fitting: Save Motif 1 Day! The festival that defines the unique spirit of Rockport has now been quarantined (so to speak) for two years. Rockport Exchange would love to bring Motif No. 1 Day back in 2022, but we need your help! Proceeds from the sale of posters support the all-volunteer community work of Rockport Exchange.

You can purchase online or by stopping by the wonderful establishments, listed below, who have partnered with us in offering the 2021 poster for sale.

Many, many thanks to the following businesses:

The Paper Mermaid, John Tarr Store, Bullseye Books-Flyboys, Tuck’s Candy & Gifts, Seaside Boutique and Beads, Sea and Cellar, Floating Lotus, Wicked Peacock, Love Strut Boutique, Susie’s Stories, Nature’s Body Art, Esmeralda’s, Bearskin Neck Leathers, Katie’s Gift Shop, The Dove, James Russell Goldsmiths, Lula’s Pantry, Coast and Country Boutique, The Last Resort

This year’s poster is designed by our own Darren Mason, with his usual blend of artistic skill, appreciation for Rockport, and a bit of wry humor. Thank you Darren!!!

Thank you for your support and for bringing Harvestfest 2020 home!

On behalf of Rockport Exchange, thank you SO much for your support for our Harvestfest to Home Fundraiser! While we couldn’t gather together this year for our annual celebration of local food and drink on the wharf in Rockport, we were able to honor the harvest season and our fantastic local food purveyors by offering meals-to-go and a farmers’ market sampler.

Thank you to everyone who purchased a meal or sampler in advance,  and thank you to everyone who came to our Harvestfest to Home pickup and purchased fresh produce, local flowers, and baked goods. We especially loved hearing live music again and are grateful to local favorites The Headlands for playing at the Harvestfest to Home Pickup — such an amazing treat! 

And finally, a very special thank you to Rockport Music for hosting the fundraiser pickup, and to the folks at Common Crow, Cake Ann, Bella & Harvey, Marshview Farm, Sea & Cellar, and Lattof Farmhouse Kitchen for creating our delicious Harvestfest meals-to-go, and Brothers’ Brew, Halvah Heaven, Pigeon Cove Ferments, Spicy Shark, The Fudgery, Seaview Farm, Bonny Breads, Breakwater Roasters, Bliss Bites for contributing to our Harvestfest Market Samplers.

See you on October 17th for our Harvestfest to Home Pickup!

Thank you so very, very much for all your support for our fundraiser. But the fundraiser fun ain’t over yet! We have our Harvestfest to Home Fundraiser Pickup on October 17th from 11am-2pm at 16 S. Main Street in Rockport, and ALL are welcome. If you’ve pre-ordered a Harvestfest Market Sampler or a Harvestfest Family Meal-to-Go, then look for an email from us with pick up details. Haven’t ordered a sampler or a meal-to-go? No worries — you can still stop by and purchase hard cider, fresh dahlias, sweets, and fresh, local produce. 

See you there!

We are at 23 patrons for the Harvestfest to Home Fundraiser, and we are GRATEFUL.

Our Goal?

To reach 100 patrons showing support for the Harvestfest to Home Fundraiser and the nonprofit Rockport Exchange. Every year thousands of visitors and locals alike enjoy our festivals and the Rockport Farmers Market. It doesn’t seem impossible to reach our goal of 100 supporters. Can we count on you to be among them?
