Tourism Valemount > Events

From mud racing to music festivals there is always something going on in the heart of the Robson Valley.

Come for the mountains, stay for the party

The mountains may lure you in, but it’s the people and the all the ways we celebrate that will keep you coming back to Valemount. The entire Robson Valley comes alive during the annual Valemountain Days in June, with a parade, a pageant, bouncy castles and a barbeque competition. Make sure to pack your cowboy hat when you visit us for the Canoe Mountain Rodeo in July. Cowboys and cowgirls from throughout the region compete in barrels, bull riding, bareback and more. 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. And for those looking to experience music in the mountains, use Valemount as your base for the 10th annual multi-genre Robson Valley Music Festival. Here are some more ways you can mix and mingle with the locals
