The annual Vancouver Mural Festival, now in its fifth year, features over 60 pieces of public art unveiled in nine neighborhoods across the city from August 18 to September 7. Over the past five years, Vancouver Mural Festival has produced over 200 murals in Vancouver and the surrounding area.

In addition to its original home in Mount Pleasant, the festival will be creating art in South Granville, Robson, the West End, Downtown Vancouver, Strathcona, Gastown, River District, and Marpole.

Nightly performances at an outdoor, cabaret-style venue, will occur twice a night from Tuesday through Sunday for the duration of the festival - plus a finale show on the final night.

Original pieces, as well as limited reproduction prints, will be available for sale. And to make mural hunting even more exciting, Vancouver Mural Festival is hosting a contest with prizes from each of the festival’s nine neighbourhoods.

Reserve a free table and sit back and enjoy the weekend with drinks at Weekend Open Sessions, all day Friday plus Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
