It’s almost time for the annual Headbanger festival in Radium Hot Springs! “What is headbanging?” you ask. No, it’s not heavy metal music. Instead, this festival celebrates the bighorn sheep that literally bang their heads against each other each fall. This tradition is part of the fall rutting season. Bighorn sheep live and roam freely in Radium, and this festival November 2-4 is a great opportunity to see the action.
The bighorn sheep are the highlight of the weekend, but don’t miss the engaging presentations from Parks Canada. The weekend also includes a workshop on smart phone photography, a hike, and an art class. Refer to the details below for the complete schedule and prices. Registration closes Friday, October 26, so sign up soon!
Oh, and did we also mention there will be food? Check out the menu below to see what tasty treats are planned for the weekend.
Of course, you can also explore the charming town of Radium while you’re there. Soak in the hot springs, relax as you gaze at the beautiful mountain scenery, or take a walk on the Sinclair Canyon hiking trails. Radium is always a fun town to visit, and the exciting Headbanger Festival is just one more reason to love it.
