Mountain View Arts Society
The Mountain View Arts Society (MVAS) is a grassroots, volunteer run society that promotes and encourages a variety of artistic opportunities and events for the enrichment of the general public. We host three Signature Events in Didsbury:
1. A Brush with Art Art Show & Sale held in April during the Art, Travel, and Trade Expo - www.mountainviewartssociety.ca/artshow.html
2. Days of Yore, held the August long weekend - www.mountainviewartssociety.ca/daysyore.html
3. Mountain View Arts Festival, held the 2nd weekend in September - www.mountainviewartsfestival.ca
The Arts Festival is the largest of the events MVAS hosts each year. This is a 2½ day festival that includes a festive opening reception Friday night.
Days of Yore is the only tourism event held during the Heritage Day weekend in Mountain View County.
The Arts Society is run entirely by enthusiastic volunteers. All of the events are designed to engage participants in the artistic, cultural and/or heritage of this county, such as visual arts of all kinds: poetry, performance art, music, dancing, literary arts, handicrafts and more.
