Mural Competition

Calling all artists! Share your creativity and help brighten our Festival for the 2022 Season!

Our annual Mural Competition has begun and we’re looking for creative painters to paint a beautiful mural that captures the spirit of the Minnesota Renaissance Festival! Your murals can include but are not limited to jousting, juggling, mermaids, fairies, dragons, unicorns, your favorite acts from the Renaissance, witches, wizards, and more! Designs must be original and painted by the person submitting the form.

All murals must be 2′ x 2′ and painted with an outdoor paint or finished with a waterproof cover. They must be painted on a weather-treated material (i.e. treated plywood). The murals will be put on display at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival and will be exposed to the elements during the duration of our 2022 season. Please write your name on the back bottom right corner of the mural. Upon delivery provide a copy of your registration form taped to the back. Contest FREE to enter. Each submitted mural competitor will receive one free admission ticket.

Murals will become the property of the Minnesota Renaissance Festival once dropped off. **Please call ahead to schedule your drop off time**
