What Are You Bringing?
FIGMENT is a unique, free, interactive, non-commercial, 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 2011, FIGMENT NYC welcomed almost 20,000 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 bring FIGMENT back to the nation’s capital the last weekend of September. This year, FIGMENT DC will be held at the North Field of Anacostia Park. This family-friendly event will transform this beautiful urban park into a magical artists’ playground.

We strongly encourage you to read through our Getting There page for information about how to get to Anacostia Park. GPS systems have proven to be unreliable.
