Canstruction

This year's theme is fairy tales, folklore, and mythical creatures!

Canstruction is a charity event and exhibition where teams of architects, designers, engineers, and contractors compete in magical feats of engineering to create whimsical sculptures made out of canned goods and other nonperishable food items—without the use of glue or other adhesives. Now in its 22nd year, Canstruction raises hunger awareness in Massachusetts by challenging 29 Boston design teams to transform thousands of nonperishable food into larger-than-life masterpieces at BSA Space and in the Atlantic Wharf lobby at 280 Congress Street, Boston. The participating teams will compete for top honors in categories including Best Use of Labels, Best Meal, Structural Ingenuity, Most Cans, and Jurors’ Favorite, among others.

Admission is free and kid friendly. Suggested donation: one can or other nonperishable item of food per person (such as tuna, beans, peanut butter, and canned vegetables).
