Motif No. 1 Day
May 18 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Motif No.1 Day Festival celebrates Rockport across the arts!
Motif No.1 Day 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 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.
