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!

We give our business community an opportunity to show their support of the arts at several events throughout the year, and to very different, yet similar audiences. We support our supporters at every turn! Please check back for our 2019 Sponsorship Package in November.

In 2019, you'll also probably see us at the Didsbury's Block Party, Didsbury Elks Parade, Carstairs Parenting Fair, Showcase Didsbury, Olds Registration Night, and caroling during Didsbury Country Christmas!

Click here to have your art group sent admin access to our Arts Calendar of Events. This is a calendar of any arts, culture, or heritage events happening in our region. Businesses and organizations can add their own events and activities - especially great for partnering with events or to avoid duplication of events on the same days.

The Mountain View Arts Society is Didsbury's Not-For-Profit Society of 2015. If you have any ideas for any of our events, or would like to volunteer an hour or two, please drop us an e-mail and let us know. We'd love to hear from you!
