|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!
We're Full - And What a Lineup of Talent!
Great toe-tappin' music is the heart of any festival. We've got a full slate of talented local stage performers and musicians for our stages at Vintage Coffee Bar and the Didsbury Saloon!
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!
The event is being promoted throughout the province and across the country. We give our performers 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 questions, send our Performer Coordinator an e-mail. Let us know you're coming and we'll let everyone else know, too!

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.
