Festival Heroes: Local Businesses

We all know that local businesses are crucial to the success of any community. Not only do they provide employment and economic stability, but local businesses create an opportunity for the rest of us to keep more of our dollars circulating within our own region, which benefits everyone. We would like to take this opportunity to recognize our sponsoring businesses -- all of which are civic-minded -- and say thanks for helping fund our community programming. Take a moment to look through the list of sponsors here on our site, and check back for an updated 2012 list as we continue to build relationships with local businesses & professionals.

Three local businesses have gone the extra mile to support Motif No. 1 Day, sponsoring our three main programs: The Kids' Art Zone, the Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest and the Dock Square tent. Rockport National Bank is supporting the Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest, with prizes awarded in the following categories: Adult, Teen, Youth & Family. Gray, Gove & Gove Insurance Agency is sponsoring the Kids' Art Zone in recognition of the importance of investing in the next generation, and Brothers' Brew Coffee Shop is supporting the Dock Square Music & Art tent, which represents not only the center of the festival, but the center of Rockport as a community as well.

Please say thanks when you get the chance to a representative of one of these Rockport businesses, and thank you for supporting Rockport Festivals by showing up on Saturday, Motif No. 1 Day and having a great time!
