Citric Festival is a street art festival that takes place throughout the year in the city of Torreblanca (Castellón, Valencia). 

This festival is a contest that has been performed every year since 2015 and that is organized by the Town Hall of Torreblanca and sponsored by Infertosa, being an urban art project that promotes the practice of muralism in the urban environment and which makes available to artists and neo -muralists to perform their works on the facades ceded by the neighbours and the town hall of this village. This festival is another of the emerging initiatives that allow to beautify the public spaces of the cities, in this case Torreblanca, and enable new spaces for the development of urban art, meanwhile it locates this city as a destination to visit for street lovers art. 

In this way, Torreblanca joins the phenomenon of street art exhibitor cities, such as the MIAU of Fanzara, whose organization also collaborates in the development of the Citric Festival. According to this, in its fourth edition, the festival continues to develop, to grow and to bring more and more new artists, whether they are local, national or international. All this without losing its main characteristic: show murals that mostly are colourful, vivid and flashy and which are very appealing and generate a visual impact that encourage its observers to contemplate or meditate about them.
