Fun times at the Arts Festival 2021 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.
Fun times at the Arts Festival 2021 SHADOW PUPPETS & ROCK PAINTING
Design your own shadow puppets in the theatre corner hosted by the Didsbury Municipal Library. PLUS, as part of our pARTy Centre, you'll visit with the Victorian Society members, and join your friends in creating a "River of Rocks" for Didsbury's Memorial Park! There's a face painter and a caricaturist too!
Fun times at the Arts Festival 2021 SCARECROWS ON PARADE
It's harvest time, and so it only makes sense that there be Scarecrows, and that's exactly what's happening at the Didsbury Museum - in fact, it'll be a PARADE of scarecrows! We're inviting everyone to put their artistic thinking caps on and plan their scarecrow(s) this summer.
Fun times at the Arts Festival 2021 ARTISTS AT WORK
What's an arts festival without artists? Artists 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!
Fun times at the Arts Festival 2021 ARTISAN VILLAGE
Meander through our promenade from some of Alberta's best. 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.
Fun times at the Arts Festival 2021 FAMILY DANCE SATURDAY NIGHT
It's been a few years since we hosted a Family Dance and with the past 18 months finally behind us, it's time to kick up our heels! A donation for the Mountain View Food Bank is all the admission you need!
