NORTHWEST MURALFEST IN THE DALLES is finally here
August 24 – 28 in The Dalles Oregon
Once a year, hundreds of Walldogs volunteer and travel on their own time and dimes to gather in one lucky town or city to paint multiple murals and old-fashioned wall advertisements. After being postposed for 2 years because of the pandemic, the Northwest MuralFest is finally here. This five-day mural painting event is to be held in The Dalles, OR, August 24 – 28, 2022. During the festival, 15 new historical murals will be created in the downtown area.
Residents, volunteers and the business community worked 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 historic murals.
