From mud racing to music festivals there are events for the whole family in Valemount in the heart of the Robson Valley.

Welcome to Valemount – Explore all our seasons & events!

The mountains may lure you in, but you’ll keep coming back for the people and our celebrations. The entire Robson Valley comes alive during the annual Valemountain Days in June, with a parade, bouncy castles and loggers’ events.

In August, the Mud Races return at the Rodeo Grounds. Decibel levels are intense as the trucks tear into the track, shattering the peace of the valley for one intense and unforgettable weekend. For those looking to experience music in the mountains, use Valemount as your base for the annual multi-genre Robson Valley Music Festival. Here are some more ways you can mix and mingle with the locals
