2014 WAF opening morning
Hello from Snow Covered Wickford!
Green grass is nowhere to be seen in Rhode Island these days but that doesn't mean that we aren't busy planning for the 53rd Anniversary of the Wickford Art Festival!  Our Call for Artists is open, we are rounding up volunteers and will be awarding the Annual Scholarship Awards in March. Plus gathering donations for this years Scholarship Awards Raffle and working on other ways to enhance the artists' and public's experience. Wickford has a long history of art and we hope that you will join us in celebrating!

53rd Wickford Art Festival

Call for Artists! 
Applications are being accepted from fine art artists for the 53rd Anniversary of the Wickford Art Festival.  Applications must be postmarked by April 1st for consideration. 

Download applications and the Rejury List from our website, read about RI Tax Permits  and other information for artists.
Festival Volunteer Meeting
An event this large depends on volunteer support, from soliciting ads for the festival program, assisting artists with setup/takedown, booth sitting, donation pickups, selling apparel and so much more. We need your help! Our first (of many!) volunteer meetings is March 11, 2015 at 7 PM at the WAA Gallery. Join us to learn more about how to help. 
WAA Scholarship Awards
Join us at the Gallery on March 22, 2015 at 3 PM as WAA awards $5,000 in scholarships to three high school seniors who are continuing on to an art college in the fall. Winners are given space in the Wickford Art Festival to exhibit their work and start their life long path as career artists. Ceremony is free and open to the public - mark your calendars!

Scholarship Raffle Donations
Each year, the Scholarship Raffle of Art proceeds help fund the Scholarship Awards. Donations of fine art from our artist members and festival artists are raffled during the Wickford Art Festival. Please consider supporting young artists with your tax-deductible donation of a piece of your artwork! We will also acknowledge your donation of artwork  in the festival program and in social media. 
You may drop your work off at the Gallery or contact us if you would like someone to pick it up. 
Support WAA!
Ads, Sponsorships and more
Promote your business through a festival sponsorship or advertisement in the Wickford Art Festival Program. Each year, volunteers distribute thousands of free full color programs to attendees: why not use this opportunity to reach tens of thousands festival goers and support the arts at the same time! In addition to businesses, we have donation options available for people too. 
Please email the festival director at for more information on how we can work together to promote your business. Donations are tax deductible!


Please contact me if you need more information!
