Join Waterford Walls this coming August when 35 internationally acclaimed street artists paint Waterford City's walls for the fifth year. There will also be guided city art trails, bus tours of the greenway artwork, live music and an outdoor film.

Waterford Walls is an international street art festival which takes place this coming August 22nd-25th. This is the fifth installment of this much loved festival and builds on the work of making Waterford City the go to street art destination in Ireland.

In 2019, 36 artists descend on the city once again to paint and transform the Waterford into an open air gallery of colour. Join Waterford Walls for their usual offering of quirky festival programme of activities. These include guided art trails of the artists in action as well as art from the previous 5 years. There is also a guided bus tour of the art on the greenway on Friday, August 23rd. Another new and quirky event in the festival programme is a Waterford Walls day bus tour from Cork to Waterford, returning on the same day. Booking is strongly advised for all these activities so you are not disappointed.

Waterford Walls has live music and food over the 3 days in different venues in the city and a debut screening of an outdoor street art film which are free entry for all to enjoy.

Make sure to go along this coming August 22nd to 25th for a big Waterford Walls welcome.
