Where to Find Murals in De Pere, Wisconsin (Plus: Forever Love Locks)

De Pere Murals

De Pere’s mural and public art project began in 2018, and there are true show stoppers to see throughout the city. The project’s goal is to bring downtown murals to town to create public art that conveys a piece of the story of De Pere’s history while reflecting a connection to the current vibe of the city or a vision for the future. From a building covered in giant bees to gorgeous murals, you do not want to miss the chance to spend part of a day exploring the amazing public art in De Pere. The murals reflect the people, culture, and spirit of this vibrant city.

When you’re packing your bag to be ready for an afternoon out, grab a padlock and scratch in the initials of your loves to add to the love locks at Sunset Point on the De Pere Riverwalk in Voyageur Park.

When you’re ready for a break, grab a coffee or sweet treat at Luna Cafe or The Exchange. The Exchange has a cool S’ mores Waffle Meal kit for families that includes a delicious waffle building experience as well as conversation starters and access to a 16-page family dinner table packet with fun activities that will keep the family connection going well after the waffle eating has ended.
