Montreal Mural Festival 2021
Each year the Montreal Mural Festival transforms urban buildings into works of art. Talented artists from around the world transform the city landscape into a living, breathing art museum.
The MURAL festival is an 11 day event championing live art. The festival has transformed Montreal, reinforcing Montreal as a go to global destination for contemporary urban art and an ultimate tourist destination.
Most of the art displays take place Downtown in the Quartier des spectacles with over 80 murals and installations around the central strip of Boulevard Saint-Laurent. During the festival, visitors can see that year’s crop of artists paint live over three days of celebration, including dance parties, food truck gatherings and fun in the street, which is closed off to traffic for the occasion.
The city’s visual identity has become world famous thanks to the efforts of intrepid artists including Omen, Bonar, Zïlon, Roadsworth, Chris Dyer, Kevin Ledo, Jason Botkin, the HVW8 and En Masse collectives and so many more.
The street-art HQ in Montréal is arguably Station 16, an art gallery on Saint-Laurent Boulevard founded by the organizers of MURAL – an art promotion organization called LNDMRK – where during the festival and all year-long, you can see wall art produced by famous names from the international street arts scene
Take advantage of guided tours and explore the fest’s new and past works. With over 30 tours to choose from, participants will be guided by a knowledgeable tour guide through a 90-minute walk of Montreal’s best street art spots. The walking tours cost $20 + taxes. Alternatively, a private tour is available, which includes 2 alcoholic beverage vouchers and a $20 voucher for the BBQ Grill St-Laurent per person.
Come for the live art and stay for the Grill St. Laurent BBQ competition and after parties, live stage performances and special theme party nights at the city’s top gay bars and clubs.
