|What Makes You Smile - MUSIC! MUSIC! MUSIC!
This year's Festival Theme is "What Makes You Smile" and if we catch you dancing while waiting in line or shopping in a store, humming a tune while walking downtown Didsbury, or "playing drums" on the table in a coffee shop, we know we've done our job!
2019 Applications for Stage Performers Now Open!
Great toe-tappin' music is the heart of any festival. We are looking for a full slate of stage performers and musicians! We also want to make sure buskers know we have a lot of street corners to fill and we want you, too!
AND WE WANT YOU!!
We have lots of music at two different stages, all day long, both Saturday and Sunday.
The event is being promoted throughout the province and across the country. We will give you as much exposure as possible on our website, on Facebook and Twitter, through Travel Alberta, Evensi, MyDidsbury.ca, and other websites, and in various print materials.
If you have any questions, e-mail Mike, our Performer Coordinator.
PLEASE NOTE: The Mountain View Arts Festival showcases musicians and entertainers from Alberta. There are no openings for performers from outside Canada.
If you are a street performer, you'll find yourself right in the centre of all the action as our main venues are just a hop, skip, and a jump from each other. If you have a talent you'd love to share, we'd like to hear from you. Kids of all ages love talented individuals who play music, perform magic, do gymnastics, juggle, dance - we even have room for mimes, living statues, puppeteers, mascots - you name it, our families love it!
If you have questions, send us an e-mail or call 403-335-9445. Let us know you're coming and we'll let everyone else know, too!
We will also accommodate non-profit organizations, so if you would like to use the arts festival as a fundraising opportunity, come to us with your great ideas and we'll see what we can do. For more information, please call Bev at 403-994-0494 or e-mail the Arts Society.
What is Busking? Street performers earn their living by "passing the hat". So when you enjoy their performance, let them know with your loonies and toonies, $5s and $10s. It's up to you how much you pay, but please, show your appreciation to our local talented performers.
