Radium Car Show - Columbia Valley Classics Autumn Show and Shine

Radium Hot Springs Events

Radium Hot Springs events reflect the warm, friendly spirit of this close-knit community.

Each September, Radium hosts the huge annual Columbia Valley Classics Autumn Show and Shine (known to all as the Radium car show), which attracts crowds from as far away as Saskatchewan and down into the northwest US to view the thousand-plus classic cars on display. Then the Headbanger Festival in November celebrates the community’s close relationship with the Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep of Kootenay National Park and both residents and many visitors come to learn about, and perhaps get up close and personal with, the sheep who make their winter home in the village.


Each Friday during the summer months, both locals and visitors enjoy the Market and Music on Main, where talented Columbia Valley musicians entertain shoppers at the farmers’ market outside the visitor centre. Smaller events like Radium Days and the annual Stampede Breakfast at the fire hall are family affairs with special games and activities just for the children.

Just a few miles up the road in nearby Edgewater, the widely popular Steamboat Mountain Music Festival draws crowds to hear top musicians perform during the outdoor weekend event each July.

With nearly all Radium Hot Springs events, family is top on the list of priorities when it comes to planning the village celebrations, so you will find that most events welcome all ages.
