What we're about

Welcome to Free And Cheap Things in Boston (aka FACT-Boston)!

FACT-Boston has two primary objectives:

(1) inform people about free (or darn cheap) things to do in Boston that they might not otherwise know about, and

(2) help people find others to do those things with, in case they don't feel like doing them alone.

We'll find fun things to do that are either free or cost no more than $10. And we'll make some new friends in the process!

Here's to finding many FACTs (Free And Cheap Things) in Boston!


PS - You can now find us directly at http://www.FACT-Boston.com .

Feel free to suggest any free events you want. If you want to have a paid event by which you profit, you must speak with me regarding posting terms.

Upcoming events (5+)


Come join us and a multicultural mix of Millenials and Gen-X professionals in our reserved area at one of Boston's most sought-after venues for socializing and great music. Conveniently located in the heart of Boston's historic, financial district at the corner of High St. and Batterymarch, Howl at the Moon is easy to find and impossible to forget. Start the night off with a few drinks ($2 & up!) and a buffet of quality American fare. Soon after, the stage comes alive with dueling pianos and instruments galore performing covers of songs you can't help but sing and dance to. Hang out for a couple hours or stay as late as you like with no waiting in line or additional cover to pay. The last time we ran this event we had over 100 people in attendance! Mention David Z-MeetUp at the door and they’ll direct you to our reserved area! We want the event PACKED so we're offering Early Bird tickets for $5 online. ** Bring in a group of 5 or more and your ticket is FREE ** Get your tickets now! https://june-2019-social-gathering-hatm.eventbrite.com With a little effort, on-street metered parking is available. Many parking garages and lots are nearby as well. Don’t drive? It’s only a 5-7 minute walk from State St. on the Orange Line or South Station on the Red. Any questions or problems call/text David Z at[masked] SEE YOU THERE! Matt W & Dave Z

FREE MOVIE FLICKS - 🎥 Ralph Breaks the Internet 

Hatch Memorial Shell

Oh it's that time of year again! Join me and some friends while we watch a feature film under the stars! At 7:30PM-8:00PM I will meet people in front of the General George Patton Statue near the front right of the DCR Hatch Shell. Then together find a spot to watch the movie in the middle but inline with the statue. Also I have a unicorn headband to help you find me and or glow sticks. Pack up a blanket, lawn chair and picnic/lunch. All movies are shown at dusk. About the movie/Trailer: https://youtu.be/T73h5bmD8Dc "Video game bad guy Ralph and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz must risk it all by traveling to the World Wide Web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope's video game, "Sugar Rush." In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet -- the netizens -- to help navigate their way, including an entrepreneur named Yesss, who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site BuzzzTube." How to get there: Red line stop Charles/MGH would be the easiest and just walk over. There is no parking on Storrow drive but I know people have parked on the street around Cheer and walked over.
