Whirlygig coincides with Art-a-Whirl presented by NEMAA, the largest open studio tour in the country. There will be artwork from nearly 1,000 artists in every medium at more than 60 locations, including the Solar Arts Building. At the taproom, watch Chuck U at work during one of his live painting sessions.


There will be car parking available for $25 and free bike parking nearby. NEMAA is offering free Metro Transit bus passes and VIP parking passes at Quincy Hall all weekend long; download a bus pass or purchase a parking pass here.


Entry to this event is free and open to all ages (must be 21+ to drink). Please keep your fur babies at home. Whirlygig will go on rain or shine. The event is CASH ONLY, both inside and outside. ATMs will be on-site.
