The Hoodoo Mural Festival is one of my favorite festivals in Amarillo. The artwork is amazing. The artists all have a crazy talent. The festival goes a long way in adding personality and beauty to the downtown core, and it’s happening on October 2nd.
What is the Hoodoo Mural Festival
The Hoodoo Mural Festival takes months. It all starts with the application process. The application period this year seemed to go pretty quickly. On social media, the organizers even mentioned that they had received tons of entries and were able to fill the festival fairly quickly.
From there he moved on to planning and finally painting the murals. Once done, it’s party time.
Who attends the Hoodoo Mural Festival
To be poetic, the whole town of Amarillo. To be more precise, artists from everywhere. They come from as far as just outside of Portland. Also, these artists are mostly wall artists. They know how to make the most of their space.
What the murals look like
The murals are as unique as the artists themselves. Themes, messages and styles all vary from mural to mural. This is what makes the Hoodoo Mural Festival so fun. When you step outside to look at all the murals, you will see a wide variety of amazing artwork.
