Fans of the beloved Vancouver Mural Festival are in for a treat this year! Not only will visitors get to check out an open-air gallery of new murals across the city, but they’ll get to enjoy a 10-day festival that goes beyond the iconic City Centre Artist Lodge.

According to the VMF website, this year’s celebration will expand into the streets surrounding the artist lodge, complete with pop-up markets and beer gardens, live art, and much more.

In years past, the festival has completely transformed Vancouver’s public art scene, bringing hundreds of new artworks by local artists to fruition. This year is slated to be just as impactful and community-oriented – and not to mention a blast for all ages.

From guided walking tours to food trucks to block parties – there will be a little something for everyone.
