The Village of Radium Hot Springs and the Radium Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce stand together and are disappointed in the recent announcement of venue change for the Show & Shine portion of the 28th Annual Columbia Valley Classics Autumn Show & Shine. 

The Show & Shine portion traditionally held on the third Saturday of September will be moving from the Springs Course Driving Range to the Copper Point Golf Club's driving range. 

We acknowledge that the Columbia Valley Classic Car Club is a not-for-profit organization and can move their event according to the direction given by their club members. Both the Village of Radium Hot Springs and Radium Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce remain strong supporters of the Columbia Valley Classic Car Club and the Columbia Valley Classics  Autumn Show & Shine. 

We understand the value that this event brings to the economy in the Columbia Valley. 

The Village of Radium Hot Springs looks forward to hosting the Friday night registration and all the other festivities associated with the evening. 

We wish both the Columbia Valley Classic Car Club and Copper Point Golf Club success at the new location on Saturday, September 16.

Columbia Valley Classics Autumn Show & Shine

We are pleased to announce that Copper Point Golf Club will now be the host venue for the Columbia Valley Car Show (Radium Car Show held at The Springs Golf Course driving range) which will be held on Saturday, September 16th.

This is a huge opportunity not only for Copper Point Golf Club but for all Invermere businesses, as we expect between 800 to 1,000 cars and over 8,000 people viewing the cars.

Both golf courses will operate as normal with the exception of the Driving Range which will close at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, September 15th, be closed all day on Saturday, September 16th and then reopen on Sunday, September 17th.

All guests here to view the cars will park near the Chamber of Commerce building and Farmers Institute field and will be shuttled to the driving range. Only guests with Tee Times and reservations in The View Restaurant will have access to the parking lot at the Clubhouse. Special arrangements may be made for parking in the Clubhouse parking lot, but those requests must be done through Brian Schaal in advance of Wednesday, September 13th.
