PROUD SUPPORTER OF THE ARTS FESTIVAL

What's good for your soul? MUSIC! MUSIC! MUSIC!

Everyone knows that music is good for the soul. Great toe-tappin' music is the heart of any festival and we'll have a full slate of talented local stage performers and musicians at both locations.

WE'VE GOT A FULL HOUSE!
WANTED: People who LOVE MUSIC!

The Mountain View Arts Society has been bringing musicians and artists to Didsbury, and showcasing locals since 2011. The 10th Edition of the Mountain View Arts Festival takes place September 11 & 12, 2021 in Didsbury Alberta. Our desire is to showcase that Didsbury, Olds, Carstairs, Sundre, Cremona - all the communities in and around Mountain View County - have an incredible wealth of artistic talent.

There are two main stages for this year's festival:

  • In the Multi-Purpose Room of the Memorial Complex (watch for signs)
  • In the Mercantile Room of the Didsbury Museum
  • Music performances Saturday and Sunday between 11 am and 5 pm

You'll be able to sit back and relax at both locations, stay as long as you want, and enjoy some of Alberta's best performers. An incredible weekend of live performances - see them all for free!

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!
