Headed to Green Bay? We've got a slew of great recommendations for places to visit.  But if you're art-inclined, you'll also want to make some time to explore the growing collection of murals cropping up in the city.

You’ll find a large concentration of murals in the reinvigorated historic Broadway District, located just West across the Fox River from Downtown Green Bay. The area is walkable and home to a wide variety of restaurants, shops and boutiques, so you can easily spend the day perusing the local scene, appreciating the wide variety of art and sampling a wide variety of fare from restaurants and coffee shops along the way.

The area is also a haven for street festivals, a local farmers market and a variety of events throughout the year. At least ten of the murals in the Broadway District were created during the inaugural Mural & Busker Festival in August of 2021. The festival featured street performers (musicials, jugglers and dancers) who performed throughout the district as artists painted their murals. The festival is slated to take place for a second year on June 16-19, 2022. 

Here are 10+ murals we visited during one of our recent trips to Green Bay along with information about who created them and where you can find them.
