CB16 dParty!

Join us Common Boston on Friday, June 3, 2016 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm for our signature, annual event, the dParty! This fun and lively get together celebrates all things design and serves as a kickoff party for our open house festival weekend. 

For the #CB16 dParty, we'll transform a floor of the Innovation and Design Building—home to a dynamic mix of architecture and design firms, creative service studios, makerspaces, tech start-ups, and other innovative companies—into a block party-style event! Common Boston 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!
