MURAL festival: street art galore


May 20, 2014 Perfectly embodying Montréal's creativity, MURAL festival brings street art to the forefront with four days of festive graffiti, painting and music. This international festival transforms the face of Saint-Laurent Boulevard into an open-air museum where you can admire the monumental murals created by local and international artists.

Twenty renowned artists bring color to Montréal's urban landscape during the second edition of the festival. From June 12 to 15, 2014, they will create twenty new murals before the eyes of passersby, which can then be observed throughout the year free of charge.

Most murals are located on Saint-Laurent Boulevard between Sherbrooke Street and Mont-Royal Avenue. Have a look at this map to see their exact location.

This year, the festival is enhancing its programming with live music to accompany the muralists at work. Honouring the festive reputation of Montreal, five block parties will bring some oomph to the already vibrant nightlife of the city.
