Montreal Mural Arts Festival : Everything you need to know

Montreal Mural Arts Festival   Everything you need to know

Everything you need to know about the Montreal Mural Arts Festival is here !

This is the 7th edition of the festival.

It all started from the dream of 4 men who loved traveling around the world to attend the planet’s best festivals. Alexis Froissart, Andre Bathalon, Yan Cordeau and Nicolas Munn Rico (founders of the Mural festival) noticed there was a gap in the market.

”We didn’t have this kind of festival in Montreal so we wanted to bring it back to our hometown.” says Alexis.
”It started as a 3 day festival and we quickly grew it to 11 days this year.” He added.
It quickly grew from a simple Festival showcasing the talents of local Graph & Painting artists to an overall celebration, showcasing local shops, restaurants, designers, dancers, musicians of the underground Montreal community.
