MURAL FESTIVAL: MONTREAL QUEBEC PROVINCE, CANADA

June 11 @ 8:00 am - June 21 @ 5:00 pm

Montreal’s festival was inspired in part by the celebration of urban art happening on the Wynwood Walls. Montreal started its own festival in 2013. There was already a lively street art and graffiti scene in Montreal, but the festival has catapulted it to another realm.

For the large murals, they have a 50/50 mix of Canadian to international artists. They focus primarily on Canadian artists for the smaller venues, pop-ups and temporary art installations.

The festival secured the support of the business improvement district for the St. Lawrence Boulevard. This has ensured that they can close the street for the full 11-day festival. The business support and street closure have made it possible for them to program additional events, such as music and art installations, attracting over 415,000 visits to the festival.
