The Mountain View Arts Festival is an annual, 2 day, multi venue, arts & cultural festival. It is a signature event in the town of Didsbury, Alberta and has been hosted by the Mountain View Arts Society since 2011.

Logo designed by Lyle Schultz. The Mountain View Arts Festival is held on the weekend following the long weekend in September.

Mountain View County is a proud supporter of all that is arts, culture, and heritage in our region. The Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage Program was created to help you celebrate your community, its past and its present. When in Didsbury for the Mountain View Arts Festival, stay overnight at the Rosebud Valley Campground at the east entrance to Didsbury. The Didsbury Museum has artifacts from the homestead days, clothing, household items, farming equipment, a school room, medical room, general store, military roll of honour, and a 1907 Cast Iron Safe. Visit our museum today! In Partnership with the Didsbury Municipal Library, the oldest little library in Alberta. We're on Facebook! Follow us at MVArtsFest today! We're on twitter!
