|2018 Arts Festival - THE Weekend to Celebrate the Arts!
This is Mountain View County's largest festival of its kind. Art lovers see Didsbury come alive with all that is arts and culture in our region, including dancers, storytellers, musicians and songwriters, handicrafts, painters, potters, carvers - you name it, if it's artsy, it'll be here!
Since 2011, festival visitors have been treated to an incredible showcase of the arts and culture that is found in Central Alberta - specifically Didsbury and Mountain View County!
Something for Everyone - And Everything's Downtown!
We will be saluting arts and culture and our local heritage and, once again, we're doing it all in beautiful downtown Didsbury! Take a stroll down "Music Block" with Alberta musicians performing at the Elks Hall and the new Vintage Coffee Bar. Chalk Artists will be scattered throughout the downtown core, and Artists at Work fills the Train Station!
NEW FOR 2018! The Arts Festival will run on Friday and Saturday, September 7 & 8th. Check back for details on our new Family Dance Friday!

"Had a really great time! Everyone was super friendly and crazy awesome! Cannot wait to come back next year."
