Common Boston 2016 dParty: Block Party

  • COST

    $10 in advance or $15 at the door

Join Common Boston and the BSA Foundation on Friday, June 3, 2016 for 2016 Common Boston’s signature event, the dParty! Before 2016 Common Boston (#CB16) gives residents unparalleled access to dozens of architectural gems around 15 neighborhoods, this fun and lively event serves as the opening party for Boston’s first open house festival weekend (June 4 and 5).

Hosted at the Innovation and Design Building (IDB) in the dynamic Seaport District, this block party style event will transform the seventh floor of the IDB into its own streetscape party complete with games, food, a parklet lounge, and fantastic music! Great harbor views will complement what promises to be a great evening!
