The Granville Promenade is an initiative created by the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association to promote community in the Downtown core. As well as creating a family-friendly environment for six weekends throughout the summer, The Granville Promenade encourages visitors to support local businesses while enjoying the live performances and activities.

VMF 2021 took place from August 4 to 22, with over 60 new murals being painted and unveiled in 11 different neighbourhoods. VMF’s sixth anniversary also featured daily mural tours, in-person and online public talks, and over 40 live performances at an open-air, pop-up patio in the festival’s original home of Mount Pleasant.
