First Fridays ICA Summer Block Party: URBAN BEACH

Let's get together again and enjoy another First Friday on the Waterfront.

Skip the Cape this weekend and head to our own waterfront escape right here in Boston. DJs will turn the evening into a beachside dance party!

Art goes overtime on the first Friday of the month with guest DJs, live performance, gallery talks, specialty drinks, and more.

The ICA’s Water Café will offer for purchase a small plates menu and full bar, including cocktails inspired by the museum’s current exhibitions.

Here are the SUMMER MENU and BEVERAGE MENU.

Admission is $18 for non-members and everyone MUST buy their own ticket.

Highly recommend buying on line because it will sell out.

      Hello Lynda. Dress varies.....shorts and tank tops, jeans, business attire and party dresses. Deciding if you plan to party after may help you determine your outfit. Enjoyed your company at the concert in Franklin Park. Hope you're able to join us for another Meetup.
