Days of Yore features very special artists - artisans who specialize in creating heritage arts and traditional crafts in keeping with the character of this festival.
The Mountain View Arts Society has been bringing musicians and artists to Didsbury, and showcasing locals since 2011. The 5th edition of Days of Yore takes place July 31, 2021 but with a difference. It will be all ONLINE beginning at 12 NOON!
