Attracting tens of thousands for the past twelve years, this family-friendly festival is an explosion of creative energy and imagination, perfect for adults and kids alike.

Transcending white-walled galleries and don't-touch-that museums, FIGMENT NYC invites you to actively engage with the art: you can touch it, smell it, paint it, talk to it, dance with it, play with it, and learn from it through direct participation and experimentation. Participatory art creates dynamic collaborations between the artists, the audience, and the environment. You are invited to experience innovative installations, mobile art, performance art, dance and theater, social experiments, video projections, and plenty of music, DJs, and sound art. Create something new and make friends in FIGMENT's games, workshops, arts & crafts stations, costume tents, community building projects, lectures & seminars on participatory art and culture, and who knows what else!

Saturday, June 1st from 6pm-10pm FIGMENT NYC offers its first FIGMENT AFTER DARK program, featuring projects that have a special interactivity when the lights go down. Once the stars are out, stick around to see wearable art, LED based sculptures, art cars, blacklight reactive interactivity and more.
