Motif No. 1 Day Festival General Information

The Motif No.1 Day Festival celebrates the Arts in Rockport. And all of it centers around the fishing shack-artist's studio-tourist attraction that started it all: an old building right on one of Rockport's historic wharves that was painted so often by artists at the turn of the last century that it was given the nickname Motif No.1 by
Lester Hornby, a well know artist and instructor of the period.

Film, poetry, dance, music, and art-making activities are all a part of the festival, as well as historical presentations and a 5k and Fun Run, with proceeds to benefit Rockport Public Schools' wellness initiatives. Motif No.1 Day takes place from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, May 17th in downtown Rockport. The Motif No.1 Day 5k starts at 9am.
