sprocket mural works is excited to announce the 2019 hbg mural fest, running August 30 - September 8, 2019.
We’re back! Sprocket is super thrilled about bringing our second mural festival to brighten the cityscape of Harrisburg. This fall, local, national and international artists will create 10 new murals in 10 days. The 2019 HBG Mural Fest will host a week long series of events, including artist meet-and-greets, talks on public art, and a community paint day. It will culminate in a free block party on September 8.
Sprocket is volunteer run and volunteer powered! The success of our 2017 festival was largely because of the energy and time of our volunteer army, and we need your help again. Both before and during the 10-day festival, we have needs large and small, with volunteer roles of all types and abilities. Let us know if you can help!
Food Truck Application
The culmination of the festival will celebrate the new public works on Sunday, September 8th. This event will feature a mural tour, local food vendors, a pop-up biergarten, music performances, and an artist market presented by The HBG Flea.

18 murals in 10 days
During the summer of 2017, Sprocket Mural Works assembled and organized over 150 volunteers, welcomed 50 community sponsors and paid 16 artists to produce 18 pieces of public art in our city. We hosted 8 community events and ended the festival with a celebration that brought our community together in a meaningful way. We are so proud and humbled by the outpouring of energy, collaboration and support that made our first festival such a success.
