Mountain View Arts SocietyThe Mountain View Arts Society promotes and encourages a variety of artistic opportunities and events for the enrichment and enjoyment of the general public.

Nestled in the heart of Mountain View County in sunny Alberta lies the beautiful community of Didsbury. Didsburians were very proud to represent the province as the only Host Celebration Site between Airdrie and Red Deer during Alberta Arts Days 2011. Visitors were treated to an incredible showcase of the arts and culture that is found in Central Alberta - specifically Didsbury and Mountain View County! The group of volunteers who put on the Mountain View Arts Festival wanted more, so at the end of 2011, they applied for, and received, incorporation of a society. Following the election of a very active, creative, and engaged Board of Directors, the wheels started turning and the next thing we knew, we were hosting and organizing different events in Didsbury Alberta (art show, rock concert, spring concert, arts festival). That tradition continues. We host three main events each year: the "A Brush With Art" Art Show & Sale held during the Didsbury Art, Travel, and Trade Expo in April; the Days of Yore Living History Reenactment Festival on the August Heritage long weekend; and the Mountain View Arts Festival in September. There is usually a spring concert as well, and we try to put together a celebration during Canada's Culture Days at the end of September. Besides hosting our own events, we want to help promote artists, dancers, musicians, writers, photographers, songwriters, actors, photojournalists, and artisans - those people in our towns who help create communities with depth and feeling. Our members want to share their skills and talents with each other to develop a strong and vibrant art community.
