Figment Boston

July 22, 2017 - July 23, 2017


FIGMENT is an explosion of creative energy. It’s a free, annual celebration of participatory art and culture where everything is possible. For one weekend each summer, we transform The Rose Kennedy Greenway into a large-scale collaborative artwork – and then it’s gone.


Saturday, July 22, 2017: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

*FIGMENT After Dark 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Sunday, July 23, 2017: 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.


The Rose Kennedy Greenway, Boston MA

Site extends from Dewey Square north through multiple parcels, Greenway map HERE

How Much:

FREE! FIGMENT is a free, non-profit event, and we do not accept corporate sponsorships.

What to Bring:

Whatever you need for a day of fun. Consider: sunscreen, hat, and your imagination!

What to Expect:

Art and activities in every medium available… especially the art and activities that YOU bring!

FIGMENT Reminders

To make sure you and all other visitors have a fun and safe experience, please keep the following in mind:

  • It is NOT SAFE to CLIMB the art

  • YOUR child = YOUR responsibility

  • TREAT the art like it was your HOME

  • It is NEVER “just you” doing it!

  • THINK before you ACT

  • Make the art look even BETTER for the NEXT VISITOR


We invite people to sign up to volunteer to help at the event, and sign up for our email list for continued opportunities to help out throughout the year. If you enjoy your experiences at FIGMENT, consider joining the FIGMENT 100 or make a one-time donation! FIGMENT is entirely run by volunteers and paid for by direct support from the community!


LEAVE NO TRACE: We adhere to a “Leave No Trace” ethic, and ask you to do the same. If you bring it with you, either bring it back or make sure it gets into a trash receptacle.

NO TRANSACTIONS: One of our goals is to create a social and creative experience uninterrupted by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. FIGMENT does not sell anything on the Greenway, and does not allow commerce of any kind.
