The Northwest MuralFest is a five-day mural painting event held in The Dalles, OR, planned for August of 2022. During the festival, 15 new historical murals will be created in the downtown area.
Residents, volunteers and the business community are working on the festival creation in collaboration with the Walldogs, a group of mural painters that has come together in different towns all over the USA since 1993 to paint historical murals.
The Northwest MuralFest will draw local residents and national visitors to our community, and help promote The Dalles as an art destination. Along with the mural creations, we anticipate other contributors such as food, crafts and music vendors.
The NW muralfest is for the whole family. We are planning on a family mural designed by a local artist. Artists of all ages from tykes to grandparents will be welcomed to work on the family mural.
