Didsbury Museum is one of the most complete exhibits of life at the turn of the century.

Street performers wanted for the 2018 Mountain View Arts Festival.Buskers add delight, interest and energy to our Arts Festival, especially for those out for an afternoon stroll. Didsbury's streets provide a wonderful opportunity for buskers to showcase their craft and for residents and visitors to be entertained and show their appreciation.

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!

If you have questions, send us an e-mail or call 403-994-0494. Let us know you're coming and we'll let everyone else know, too!
