The Vancouver Mural Festival (VMF) is hosting the Winter Arts Fest in two cities for the first time ever. VMF debuts the Winter Arts Festival in Victoria and Vancouver February, 2024.

Winter Arts Festival 2024

  • Victoria: February 16 – 19, 2024
  • Vancouver: February 22 – 27, 2024

The Fest is a celebration of light, art, and storytelling, featuring sculpture, projection mapping, augmented reality (AR), laser art, performance, and more. Free to attend (except for select 19+ events) the festival creates a rhythm of indoor and outdoor experiences that inspire a sense of rediscovery of familiar streets and city spaces, providing a series of warm spaces to gather and connect around art and creativity.

Amidst the daily urban backdrop of neon signs, street names, and plaques, the 2024 Winter Arts Festival sharpens its focus on the intersection of communication, technology, and illumination, unveiling the stories woven in Victoria and Vancouver’s historic alleyways and streets.
