Event Overview:

Visit one of New England's longest running, outdoor, fine art festivals!

Since 1962, the Wickford Art Association has been the promoter of the 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 art lovers enjoy this outdoor fine art 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! Rhode Island is working towards becoming the ultimate creative community: the “State of the Arts”!

There is plenty of local food to savor at Wickford’s restaurants, the First Baptist Church on Main Street, St. Paul’s Church and other food vendors located in the town parking lot. 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.
