Can't Wait to See You September 10 & 11!
Since 2011, the Arts Festival has been one of Didsbury Alberta's signature events, and Mountain View County's largest festival of its kind! Art lovers see Didsbury Alberta come alive with all that is arts and culture in our region, including dancers, storytellers, musicians and songwriters, handicrafts, painters, potters, carvers - you name it, if it's artsy, it'll be here!

This year's activities take place at the Didsbury Memorial Complex, with music in the Multi-Purpose Room, and arts and crafts in the Curling Rink.

Not only will you take a trip down memory lane and immerse yourself in the past as we highlight simpler times, but wait till you see all that the future holds for the art world! We'll share memories you will never forget, and create new ones you'll remember for years to come.

Artists Galore!
What's an arts festival without artists? Our "Artists at Work" will be on hand ready to answer your questions, explaining how they use their tools and materials. They'll even give you a chance to do a "Make It - Take It" project!

Then there's the "Emerging Artists" area, featuring the creative and varied work of visual artists in the early stage of their career.

Meander through our promenade from some of Alberta's best at the Artisan Village. Here you will find handmade items that showcase the amazing hand-crafted products our local artisans create. 100s of one-of-a-kind Alberta-made artisan products.

Live Music all Weekend!
Great toe-tappin' music is good for the soul and is the heart of any festival. We'll have a full slate of talented local stage performers and musicians.
