High Valley Arts Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to enriching lives through excellence in the arts and is staffed by volunteers. All donations are used to expand programs to elevate the community. The group presents a broad range of artistic events with a focus on the heritage of the community. High Valley Arts Foundation was founded and incorporated as a 501(c)3 organization in January, 2009, with Sue Waldrip as chair.
In July of 2009, HVAF presented The Sound of Music outdoors at the Zermatt Resort to rave reviews and sellout crowds. However, by the summer of 2011, Zermatt had begun to stage outdoor weddings and it was impossible to continue to use the venue for musicals.
In March of 2011, the Millstream Group, a properties management business in Midway, agreed to let HVAF stage a musical on their property at 400 South 200 East. And thus was born the High Valley Arts Outdoor Summer Theater! The Millstream Group has been generous with their time and resources, grading the property and burying electrical and plumbing lines. Volunteers worked to prepare the site, including pouring a cement slab and volunteering time and materials for everything from concrete to pipes to lumber to plants, a giant rock to grace the entry, a permanent stage, backstage building and tech booth. Efforts are continuing to upgrade the beautiful outdoor venue.
High Valley Arts also presents a Christmas musical in December in Midway’s historic Town Hall along with a Fundraising Dinner Theater featuring elegantly decorated tables and a silent auction.
HVAF is a major participant in Midway’s Small Town Fourth, offering legacy home tours, a slide presentation on the history of the area, an informative presentation featuring early artifacts and the stories of their owners, and a Kids Melodrama Theater.
In 2018, HVAF created Mountain Village Arts Center, a non-profit organization to pursue donors to build a 45,000 sq ft theater in Wasatch County to give HVAF a home. Efforts are currently underway to procure petitions in favor of building an Arts Center in Midway which will be part of the presentation to the Midway City Council for approval to locate the Arts Center just south of Memorial Hill.
