On Saturday, Oct. 5, the First Annual Wakefield Art Festival will be held on Main Street in Historic Downtown Wakefield.
The festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will feature more than 140 contemporary American arts and crafts artists along with strolling entertainment including Rhode Island’s own Big Nazo and Ladies of the Rolling Pin.
Festival highlights include items big and small, in the form of jewelry, ceramics, paintings, mixed media, sculpture and home accessories. Guests of all ages will enjoy festive food and live music as well!
In addition to the juried art and crafts for sale, the festival will donate 10 booth spaces to young artists to show their work, grades 1-12.
In addition, the community will be invited to create a sculpture during the festival, which will then be donated to a local establishment, such as a library. There will also be a Creation Station at each festival where children can make crafts for a donation to Art is Smart.
“We believe that an art festival should be a family day filled with art, music, creativity and fun!” said Pilar Brenner, owner of Festival Fete.
This free community event will be held rain or shine.
