From mud racing to music festivals there are events for the whole family in Valemount in the heart of the Robson Valley.
Come for the Mountains, Stay for the Party
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, a pageant, bouncy castles and a barbecue competition.
In July, make sure to pack your cowboy hat when you visit us for the Canoe Mountain Rodeo. 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. Bring the family for the Mount Robson Marathon. And 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
When travelling throughout Valemount and the Robson Valley look for a comprehensive list of weekly events, activities and festivals posted at area Visitor Centres, tourism businesses, RV parks and campgrounds.
