Put On Your Dancin' Shoes!

Rockport Festivals is excited to announce our first community event of 2011. We are kicking off the season with our Spring Fling, a Community Dance for all ages at Rockport's beautiful & newly restored Community House. We think it's a great way to bring Rockporters (and anyone else who wants to come) together for an evening of tunes, dancing, Twin Lights soda, and cupcakes.  What could be better than that? Now don't panic if you aren't much of a dancer - some people (on our own Festivals Committee no less) are too shy, or dignified, or whatever, to bust a move in public. That's okay. You can stand on the perimeter of the dance floor and roll your eyes - just as long as you come.

Thursday, April 14th
6 to 9 pm
Rockport Community House
on Broadway in Rockport

While this event is a fundraiser for the programming we do for the town's festivals, Motif No. 1 Day and HarvestFest, we want everyone to be able to come, so admission is "Pay-What-You-Can", and you can make your donation right at the door - no advance purchase necessary.

A few more highlights of the evening? Our Motif No. 1 Photo Booth. Yes, that's right. We're bringing the Motif indoors just for the evening, so don't miss this chance to get your photo taken with Rockport's famous icon. And finally, we're revealing our commemorative Motif No. 1 Day poster the night of the dance. This is the 4th poster in our annual series of Motif No.1 Day posters featuring the work of Rockport artists. These pieces are highly collectible, produced in a limited run.

We look forward to seeing our Cape Ann friends and neighbors, shop keepers and inn keepers, gallery owners and restauranteers, professionals and families -- everyone! -- on April 14th. Just e-mail us at with any questions.

See you there!
