Mural Fest 2018 calendar dates align with the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. We will be offering the million visitors to our city with exciting adventures in art, music and cuisine spurring economic growth for local businesses and our artist community.
For twenty two days the aim is to turn Albuquerque into an International Arts District, featuring some of the worlds most renowned muralists along side New Mexico’s best. There will also be community walls where emerging artists, youth and the entire family will have the opportunity to create a piece together. In coordination with local businesses and non-profits, Mural Frest will offer dozens of art, music and culinary events throughout the festival. There will be a full calendar paired with the Festival Pass giving participants free entry and discounted deals to over 100 restaurants and local shops.
There will also be a film being shot throughout the festival interviewing people of all walks of life on their views of what they love about the city and how it can improve. Mural Fest is the foundation in which artists, non-profits and local businesses can roll their carts to, plant their seeds and dream up a brighter future for all citizens of our great city!
