Art along a riverbank
Artists bring their studio to you for this “studio tour”. You park once and let us do the rest. We’ve set up artisan food ‘stands’, a micro-brewery ale ‘stand’, a live music ‘stage’, and our ‘studios’ so that you can experience local arts in a natural setting along the bank of the Fall River. One visitor put it perfectly:
“It’s such a pleasure to have time to talk, time to stroll and time to sit by the river or enjoy the food and music, and not have to rush to the next studio… what a great idea.”
This festival is hosted by Fall River Restaurant & Pub, an award-winning locale with accolades for their choice of organic, local, sustainable food sources, their energy-efficient building, and their fine menu. Since the festival is partnered with this locally-owned business, you’ll have ample free parking, easy access to facilities and a place to stop for a tasty meal during your visit.
