About RADical Days

Since 1995, RAD has provided more than $1.3 billion in grants to our regional assets to help create a region that is vital and that invests in its future.  RADical Days is a thank you to the public for its support of the assets through the RAD sales tax.

RADical Days 2012 will take place September 22-October 7.  The locations for each date will be announced at the end of August.  More dates may be added depending on the participating organizations.
