The Scituate Art Festival was founded in 1967 for the purpose of raising money to restore the Town-owned,
Scituate Congregational Church building, which has been a landmark on the North Scituate village green since 1831. Over the years, Scituate Art Festival, Inc., a private, nonprofit,
all-volunteer organization, has provided generous support toward the maintenance of the Church building and the activities and good works of many nonprofit community-based organizations.
With thanks to Kirk Loiselle and the Town of Scituate Department of Public Works, success of the Scituate Art
Festival, Inc.'s primary mission was achieved in 2020. Mr. Loiselle and his team orchestrated this most recent restoration project of the Church Building which included required prep
work followed by two coats of exterior paint, restoration of the weather vane, a roof cleaning and the sprucing up of the surrounding grounds.
Whenever possible, the Scituate Art Festival, Inc. has also expanded on its primary mission by providing
grants to a wide variety of local nonprofit organizations. Unfortunately, cancelling the 54th Festival in 2020 due to the pandemic had a direct impact to the SAF's far reaching Grant
Program. With only limited funds available, the SAF Committee voted to make a single contribution to the Town of Scituate Human Services Department so that they may assist Scituate
residents in need during this difficult time. As a result, the Scituate Art Festival is unable to offer grant funds to other organizations this year.
