FIGMENT is a free, child-appropriate, creative event. They want you there with your games and colorful outfits and smiles, because you are a part of FIGMENT.

Nothing is for sale and there is no corporate sponsorship. It’s a chance to play, create, and learn with and from your neighbors.

Help FIGMENT transform a beautiful urban park into a magical, family-friendly, artists’ playground.

FIGMENT will be at Anacostia Park – Section E (at the roller skating pavilion) along the bike trail. Section E of Anacostia Park is just north of where Pennsylvania Ave SE and 295 (Anacostia Freeway) cross, just east of the Anacostia River. Across the river from the Anacostia Community Boathouse.

FIGMENT DC is walking distance from the metro, and there is some parking on site.
