2nd ANNUAL CULTURE DAYS - Cancelled for 2018

Celebrating Mennonite heritage and the settling of Didsbury during Alberta Culture Days. Culture Days depends on grant funding. For 2018, our funding request was not sufficiently supported. The Mountain View Arts Society will be unable to continue our plans to celebrate Alberta Culture Days in Didsbury. We hope you will take in Culture Days festivities in neighbouring communities.

Promoting All Arts Year-Round!
In addition to hosting these events, we will continue our promotion of other art events, doing everything we can to let people know about arts & cultural events in Didsbury and Mountain View County, (and our nearby neighbours in surrounding communities). Our almost daily postings in social media helps get the word out for local area painters, high school drama productions, band concerts, art galleries, museum exhibits, library programs - everybody who's doing anything that has to do with the arts!
