The Urban Arts Festival is a FREE event to display and encourage the arts within the Boston community and promote positive creative outlets among its youth to prevent violence, all while supporting local Boston artists. From 12-6pm there will be family-friendly events including children's games and activities like sack races, dodge ball, painting and more. The Boston police and fire departments have been invited as well to speak and run activities for the children.

From 1-6pm there will be live performances from Boston locals including some bands, spoken word, dancers and more. Visual artists will also be in attendance, creating canvases and various other art mediums on site. Food and drink will be offered at the event and raffles will be held for prizes.

The purpose of hosting Boston's first Urban Arts Festival is to create more opportunities for local residents to become involved in their community. This will help to position Boston's youth toward something positive and constructive.
