Thompson's Point is a development project and outdoor concert venue that has recreated an industrial area on the banks of Fore River into a cultural, residential and commercial hub. It encourages art, music and farming projects and features numerous concerts. A train shed has also been refurbished into an event venue. For the concerts, visitors can carry garden chairs and rugs to picnic outdoors while listening to their favorite bands. In the past, it has welcomed musical legends like Bob Dylan and the famous rapper Michael Franti, among other noted names.
