Motif No. 1 Day

2021 Motif No. 1 Day Festival Information 

May is Motif month! Celebrate all month long with special exhibits in Rockport and our annual commemorative poster. Follow along on Instagram: @rockport_exchange.


Rockport Exchange regrets to announce that the annual Motif No. 1 Day Festival will not be held as scheduled on May 22nd, 2021

While it is disappointing to not be able to come together in person to celebrate Rockport at the annual M1D Fest, we hope to bring the festival back next year, stronger than ever! To support our efforts, please consider purchasing a 2021 commemorative poster.

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.

Check out the schedule for our 2019 to get a taste of the “traditional” M1D, and plan to join us in-person for Motif No. 1 Day 2022!

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.
