Wickford Art Festival

Last year's Wickford Art Festival, which saw over 60,000 people coming out to attend. 

NORTH KINGSTOWN – Volunteers, board members and staff are currently in the final stretch of preparation for the 57th Wickford Art Festival, an enormous undertaking that required coordination between more than 30 committees. The festival, hosted by the Wickford Art Association (WAA), will include more than 200 artists showing their work and tens of thousands of guests travelling from all over to attend.

The festival will take place this Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with no cost for admission. 

Parking with free shuttle service will be available from Wilson Park on West Main Street, Wickford Elementary on Philips Street and Wickford Middle School on Tower Hill Road. Admission to the festival is also free. No sales tax will be included on fine art sales.
