The City of Vancouver has finally shifted its mentality about street art and is backing the first ever Vancouver Mural Festival, which takes place August 20. This festival promises to to change the face of Main Street forever, and hopefully the minds of some of the senior City officials.

In preparation for the festival, many of the 39 artists (both local and international) have already started to paint their dedicated walls. In total, 41 new permanent murals will be created. Seven have already been completed, covering the entire Maker Labs building in East Vancouver.

The festival culminates on August 20 as Main Street shuts down between 7th Avenue and East 12th Avenue for one giant block party.  Here you can attend patio parties, BBQs, dance parties, a skateboard competition (behind Antisocial Skate Shop), East Van Bazaar behind F as in Frank, roller disco, art markets, and concerts sprinkled throughout the day and into the night.

This is not your grandparents’ Vancouver, and that’s a good thing.
