About This Event

FIGMENT DC is a unique, free, interactive, participatory arts festival created for, and by, the community. At FIGMENT, anything is possible!

Born from the desire to share imagination and invention between artists and the public, FIGMENT began in 2007 on New York City’s Governors Island as a one-day festival with 2,600 participants and has steadily grown over the years. In 2012, FIGMENT NYC welcomed almost 24,000 participants on the island over two days. Moreover, FIGMENT has spread to Boston, Detroit, and Jackson, MS, with more cities lining up.

Here in Washington, DC, we are excited to bring FIGMENT to the nation’s capital on September 29, 2012 at The Yards Park. This family-friendly event will transform this beautiful urban park into a magical artists’ playground from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

We hope you and your friends can join us!
