Wickford Art Festival


Welcome to the 52nd Wickford Art Festival
Visit one of New England's longest running, outdoor, fine arts festivals!

Saturday July 12, 2014 ~ 10 am to 6 pm
Sunday July 13, 2014 ~ 10 am to 5 pm
Rain or shine!

The Wickford Art Association is proud to be the promoter of the 52nd Wickford Art Festival. This juried fine art festival features over 200 fine art artists from New England, the US and beyond.  Admission is free for visitors!

Artists and visitors enjoy the outdoor festival set on the streets of historic Wickford Village. Eclectic shops and classic homes line the streets as visitors stroll through the seaside village, meeting the artists and seeking out exceptional artwork to admire and purchase. Fine art mediums include oil, acrylic, mixed media, glass, drawing, etching, sculpture (metal, clay, wood, etc), photography, etchings, modern ink, fiber, and more.  Wickford is a "walking friendly" village that makes it easy for families, elderly and handicapped persons to enjoy the festival. 

Rhode Island is the first state in the nation to go tax-free on the sale of fine art!  This is great news for Wickford Art Festival artists who will not have to worry about submitting sales taxes on original or limited edition fine art sold at the Festival and for art lovers who now will not pay a sales tax on most purchases. (Tax-free exemption is available to local and out of state artists but certain restrictions apply. Visit Artist Application and Instructions Page for more info.) Rhode Island is working towards becoming the ultimate creative community: the “State of the Arts”!

Wickford is a dog-friendly community but please consider the day’s temperature, humidity, possibly hot sidewalks and large crowds before bringing Spot along. Additionally, all animals must be leashed, picked up after and up to date on vaccinations. Wickford loves dogs but safety first!

Besides great art, new this year is more apparel offerings, a selfie booth and free Festival stickers. Stop by our Scholarship Fund tent to purchase raffle tickets and be sure to visit this year’s Scholarship winners who will be exhibiting their work. There is plenty of local food to savor at Wickford’s restaurants, the First Baptist Church on Main Street, St. Paul’s (Friday night only) and other food vendors located in the town parking lot. Lots of parking is available at Wilson Park and Wickford Elementary School with a free shuttle (handy if you buy a big piece of artwork!). Handicap parking is in the town parking lot. Wickford Village is located in North Kingstown, RI just 20 minutes from Newport and easy driving distance from Providence, CT and MA. Situated on Narragansett Bay, scenic Wickford is easy to reach via major highways, bus, Amtrak, and the nearby airports (TF Green, Quonset and Westerly).
