The annual 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.

This is a unique celebration of a seaside village, with Rockport’s business and cultural community joining in the fun through each organization’s special activities and events in conjunction with the festival. 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 is organized and presented by Rockport Exchange and takes place from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. in downtown Rockport. The Motif No.1 Day 5k starts at 9 a.m.
