SEPTEMBER 7 & 8, 2019 IN DOWNTOWN DIDSBURY ALBERTA!
Come to Didsbury Alberta for Mountain View County's largest festival of its kind. The Mountain View Arts Festival has always been a great family fun event to share a memory, share a story, or share a laugh. In 2019, we recognize the vital issue of mental health from a variety of different artsy angles - art exhibits, live music, historical stories and yes, even happy mistakes!></td>
<td><img src= If you come with a frown, don't worry, we'll send you home with the best souvenir possible - a great, big smile! 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! 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. Buskers add delight, interest and energy to our Arts Festival, especially for those out for an afternoon stroll.

What Makes You Smile - HAPPY MOMENTS

Life can be full of ups and downs and trying something new, meeting new people and getting active are just some of the simple steps which you can take to help you improve your mental well being.

The Mountain View Arts Festival has always been a great family fun event to share a memory, share a story, or share a laugh. 2019 is no exception as we recognize the vital issue of mental health from a variety of different "artsy" angles - art exhibits, live music, historical stories and yes, even a Bad Art Studio, where there is no pressure while you create!

Hearing someone laugh or seeing someone smile makes us smile, too. That's what you'll find at this year's Arts Festival - lots and lots of happiness! Happiness is contagious, and you will be drawn to it. Guaranteed.

Take part in any activity over the 2 days of the festival and you'll find yourself responding to the musical, performance, literary, collaborative, visual, and learning experiences we offer.

The Mountain View Arts Festival - giving you a "feel-good party in your brain" as we work towards a caring and inclusive community.

We all smile in the same language.

We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.

Mother Teresa

Just put on a happy face!

Laughter is the Best Medicine

Remember to smile!
