ARTS & MUSIC FESTIVAL

BRIDGEWATER ARTS & MUSIC FESTIVAL is a non-profit (*but not a charity) organization that organizes the annual festival on July 4th. We coordinate with the 4th of July Committee (who puts on the parade,carnival and fireworks. We partner with Bridgewater State University Conference & Events Center (special thanks to Lindsey Bruno and her crew!). Local businesses and some grants support our afternoon of events. We do not receive donations from individuals or the fireworks/parade committee (they need every penny they raise for their events).
On July 4th, immediately following the parade, on the grounds of BSU, we put on a festival which includes: art, live music with a focus on original music, dance, great food, children's events such as face painting, train rides, sand art and entertainment such as puppet shows and more...
Please contact us at the phone number listed above if you want to donate money, time, or if you have an idea for additions to our festival. We thank you for your attendance and look forward to a fun-filled afternoon!
Annual favorites, FIRST PARISH UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST CHURCH at 50 School Street traditionally sells hand-squeezed fresh lemonade, food, and hosts a booksale during the Arts & Music Festival. Be sure to make a quick stop on your way over to the festival, where they will also have an information table set up.
The BRIDGEWATER 4TH OF JULY COMMITTEE puts on a fantastic hometown parade and one of the more spectacular fireworks displays in the state, drawing thousands of families to Bridgewater. They have a website, click for the Parade and Fireworks Committee, to visit their site.
