ART, CRAFT and ANTIQUES
The Scituate Art Festival, in its 51st year, is a favorite Rhode Island tradition over the Columbus
Day weekend. We feature 200 juried art and craft exhibitors, select antique vendors, a food court offering regional specialties, live musical entertainment and a huge art/craft/antique raffle.
We are proud to have been recognized seven times as 'Best Annual Arts/Crafts Festival Statewide' by the readers of 'Rhode Island Monthly Magazine'.
Scituate is a picturesque New England town nestled in the northwest corner of Rhode Island.
Visitors stroll the beautiful North Scituate village green, taking in the unique varieties of art, craft,
sculpture and antiques offered by exhibitors while listening to upbeat music and pondering what to enjoy for lunch. Autumn provides the perfect backdrop for this wonderful festival, with crisp air and
colorful foliage to energize the body and the spirit.
This annual event began in 1967 as a means of raising funds to restore the 1830's era former
Congregational Church which is located at the center of the festival grounds. Starting with just
twelve local exhibitors that first year, this well-established and much-anticipated event now draws over two hundred exhibitors
from across the United States and Canada as well as estimates of 100,000 visitors over the 3-day weekend. The proceeds of
the festival support the continued maintenance of the Congregational Church building and provide grants to a variety of nonprofit organizations within the town. CLICK HERE to see before & after photos of the project.
Experience the Scituate Art Festival just once and you will be sure to return year after year!
