Common Boston Festival
June 3 - June 4Free
The Common Boston festival, a program of the BSA Foundation, is a unique opportunity to discover and explore the region’s rich architectural, cultural, and historic resources. On Saturday and Sunday June 3 and 4, 2017, more than 50 sites throughout Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, and Brookline will open their doors to the public free of charge, allowing people to explore their city environment and deepen their knowledge of their community. From innovative wood shops and rooftop gardens to 300 year old houses and stained glass adorned sacred spaces, Common Boston’s diverse range of sites sheds light on the great and hidden architecture of Boston.
The goals of Common Boston are to promote a greater appreciation of the built environment, inspire discussion about excellence in design, planning, and preservation, and broaden awareness of the rich architectural and cultural traditions present in diverse communities throughout Greater Boston.
