SoWa Power Station
540 HARRISON AVE, South End, Boston
The SoWa Power Station in an iconic masterpiece of late-industrial glamour. Built in 1891 as the world’s largest power generation plant, it produced enough electricity to run the West End Street Railway. The century-old property’s structural elements have since been rescued and restored, transforming it into a blank canvas for community, celebration, and innovation.
Today, the Power Station is used to host weddings, fundraisers, and public events such as Create Boston, Illuminus, Copenhagen Beer Festival, Cochon555, HubWeek, and the SoWa Winter Festival.
