About Upfest

Upfest was originally dreamt up to bring 20 like minded artists together for a day of painting in Bristol. Today, the Upfest organisation hosts Europe's largest street art and graffiti festival, right here in our city. Since 2008 everything from smaller pieces to large scale murals have been painted throughout Bedminster as part of their annual Upfest festival, and each year thousands of visitors walk the streets here to see these masterpieces. The Upfest Gallery on North Street shares year round exhibitions from some of the 2000+ artists who've created pieces for the festival.

How to get there

What people are saying

Lindsay was a great host. I saw so much that I had never noticed.

Tessa Paine, Sep 2021

Really enjoyable experience with a friendly and enthusiastic host! Even living in Bristol it was nice to spend some time being guided around the art and talking about. Made me want to go and look for more and also can’t wait to see what new creations appear at the next Upfest!

Tom Weller, Sep 2021

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour of Bedminster, visiting parts I didn’t know existed having lived in Bristol for 40 years! Our Guide was excellent, she obviously loves her job and I have already recommended the walk to several of my friends. I will be looking out for the 2 new murals on my next visit to Weston.
