About the festival

The Motif No.1 Day Festival celebrates Rockport across the arts.

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.

Featuring film, poetry, dance, music, art-making activities, historical presentations and more, along with the Motif No.1 Day 5k and Fun Run, with proceeds to benefit Rockport Public Schools’ wellness initiatives, M1D is a festival with something for everyone.

Pick #2: Touch-A-Truck Day 

To Benefit the Fishtown Horribles Parade  | Gloucester High School | Sunday, May 21st from 9:00-2:00
