Earlier this month, Vancouver Mural Fest (VMF) hosted its fourth annual public art celebration, and we’re still buzzing from the excitement.

VMF is Western Canada’s largest celebration of public art, which probably doesn’t come as a shock to anyone who had the chance to check out some of the festival’s activities.

Over the course of 10 days, the streets of Mount Pleasant were bustling with free activations — attendees enjoyed everything from galleries and live paintings, to speaker series, mural runs, Pride parties, and open-air movies.

And to top it all off, VMF threw a massive street party that drew a crowd of over 150,000 people!

Of course, the most important part of Mural Fest is the art — and there was a lot of it this year. More than 25 new murals were added to the streets of Mount Pleasant, on top of the area’s 100+ existing murals that have been created in past years.

If you haven’t seen the new additions yet, we have some good news — it’s not too late. Sure, we’re low-key judging you for not seeing these sooner, but you can make it up to us by checking them out now. Better late than never!
