Saint-Laurent Boulevard is Montreal’s main artery, splitting the city in two while uniting the Montreal Community around an arousing destination. The Main never sleeps. Day and night, the boulevard put in work on different levels and makes Montreal the innovative, stimulating and welcoming city it is. The Society of Development of the Saint-Laurent Boulevard is revitalizing the Main since 2000 to make it a place of cultural, gastronomical and social avant-garde. It is within this vision that MURAL was birthed in 2013, to infuse excitement in this terrific space and create a visionary festival in Our image.
New for this 2017 edition, MURAL extends its reach to include Old Montreal, thanks to a partnership with the Société de développement commercial du Vieux-Montréal. In addition to participating in the closure of Saint-Paul Street during Grand Prix weekend this coming June 8 to 11, the Festival will present its third annual Mural Art Fair (Foire d’art mural or FAM) at the Marché Bonsecours, produce art installations and temporary murals, as well as organize special events in area establishments.
