About Us

The Scituate Art Festival, in its 52nd 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 eight 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.
