Scituate is a picturesque New England village nestled in the northwest corner of Rhode Island. Visitors stroll the beautiful Village Green, taking in some of the most unique varieties of art, craft, sculpture and antiques. Autumn provides the backdrop for this wonderful festival, bestowing crisp air and colorful foliage to energize the body and the spirit.
This annual event began in 1967 as a means of supporting the effort to restore the 1830 era former Congregational Church in the village of Scituate. Starting with just twelve local exhibitors that first year, this well-established and much-anticipated event now draws close to three hundred exhibitors from all over the United States and Canada. Proceeds from the festival are distributed to a variety of good causes within the town, including continued upkeep of the venerable old church — CLICK HERE to see before & after photos of the project.
