Dighton Arts Festival

Free Visitor Parking and Shuttle at Manheim New England

If you are planning to visit the Eleventh Annual Dighton Arts Festival, free parking is available at the festival site (1522 Williams Street). However, those spaces generally are full early. As in past years, we have arranged for plenty of free parking at the Manheim New England Auto Auction at 123 Williams Street, Dighton. Free shuttle buses will operate continuously throughout the festival to take visitors the short distance to and from the festival.

The mission of the Dighton Arts Festival is to provide a place where local and regional artists and crafters can display and sell their work in a family-oriented environment that encourages artists and crafters of all ages and promotes interest in the arts in our community. The Dighton Lions Club sponsored festival is held annually on the 1st Sunday in November at Araujo Farms and Greenhouses in Dighton, Massachusetts.

The Eleventh Annual Dighton Arts Festival will be held on Sunday, November 1 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Araujo Farms and Greenhouses, 1522 Williams Street, Dighton. The festival is sponsored by the Dighton Lions Club.

The six greenhouses at Araujo Farms will be filled with arts, crafts, music, food, and activities for this fun-filled community event. More than 70 vendors will display and offer their work for sale. Painting, photography, woodcraft, pottery, jewelry, and handmade crafts are among the diverse offerings at this year’s event. The festival will also include wood-turning, corn-grinding, shingle milling, beer-making, and chainsaw carving demonstrations and an exhibit by the New England Antique Tractor and Truck Association. Wine tasting will be a returning festival feature this year.

Children’s art will be featured in the Emerging Artists Gallery where festival visitors can view artwork submitted by local school children.

The entertainment program will include performances by many area young people including the Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School Marching Band, Dighton Middle School Flute Ensemble, and Dighton Elementary School Chorus.

The vendor list and music schedule are available on this web page.

ALL THINGS POSSIBLE | HUGGON, JONATHAN | TAUNTON, MA
I enjoy photography and capture photos using a “switch-adapted” digital camera. My camera can be mounted on my wheelchair or stander. The camera is attached to a switch button, which I tap using my hand or head to take shots. I’ve only been taking pictures for a couple of years, but my photos impressed a lot of people. I was encouraged to sell my photos, so in the Fall of 2014 I acted on the idea and started selling photo cards.
