Public Art: Great River Arts Festival

Vancouver’s Downtown Association is proud to partner with Local Boy Tatau to bring a new annual event to Downtown Vancouver—The Great River Arts Festival (GRAF)!

In August 2022, Over 15 new murals were added to the downtown core, from 5th – 15th Street. Watch the video below for a highlight of the event!

The goal of GRAF is to strengthen unity through diversity by showcasing northwest and world-renowned artists. Curating and growing a visual multicultural historic arts district experience will build and enrich the future through the arts. 2021 was the first year of the event, Local Boy Tatau and related artists won VDA’s coveted HeART of Downtown Award.

THANK YOU to all of the artists, business owners, and property owners, that made this community effort possible! The event will reoccur August 2023, stay tuned on VDA channels.
