Toronto has its fair share of gorgeous murals across the city, and now it's time to celebrate them! Toronto's Yorkville Murals is coming to the city next week. This three-day festival will take off at 99 Yorkville Ave. on Sept 12. to 14., with contemporary murals, exhibitions, DJs, block parties and so much more.
This festival starts off with a block party on Sept. 12, with live DJs, a special gallery opening presented by Christian Louboutin, live Mural paintings, and bright light installations. Expect to see a few surprises while you're there. There will be a movie screening presented by OCAD on the last day.
"This is just the beginning of the festival!" Hillary Callan, manager of public relations for the festival's organizers, INK Entertainment, told Narcity.
"We will be growing the festival within the Yorkville community in years to come. The event will appeal to both art lovers, as well as local and visiting guests. It is perfect for date night or for family's enjoying the last day's of summer."
This event has free admission but dining, and cocktails are available for a cost.
"We have been working tirelessly to deliver a festival that will be appealing to the biggest art lovers, as well as local and visiting guests alike," says Alan Ganev, Director, Taglialatella Galleries & Yorkville Murals, in a news release provided to Narcity.
