Join the fun! Fill out a parade form today!
The Grand Miners Parade is a tradition stretching back over 50 years in Cottage Grove. This year we are combining it with the Bloomers Parade, so bring your Bloomers!
Calling all the good people of Cottage Grove! It's time to pick your side in the Third Annual Slabtown vs Lemati Feud during the 2015 Bohemia Mining Days Festival, July 16-19. This year's theme, By Wing, By Wheel, By Engine of Steel, focuses on our community's early modes of transportation. Pick a side and join in the fun! We've got a wide assortment of contests for all ages.
There are bands for every taste at Bohemia Mining Days. Check the schedule to see what's new.
As the BMD events continue to expand beyond Coiner Park with a stronger focus on cultural heritage, we have added a rubber-tire train on Friday afternoon and Saturday to serve as a people mover between the festival’s key venues: Bohemia City in Coiner Park, the Carnival in Bohemia Park and All America City Square on the corner of Seventh and Main in the Historic Downtown District.
Bohemia Mining Days has always had people dressed up in period costumes. Now, we are developing programs and entertainment to help bring our mining heritage to life!
This year Bohemia Mining Days is providing a host of new attractions to go along with traditional favorites.
Come see your kids marching in the Kiddie Parade! The parade begins and ends on Friday morning at the CG Community Center with a route through the downtown area.
If you'd like to have your business or organization be a part of Bohemia Mining Days, or if perhaps you'd like to just throw us a few bucks to help out, then we've got some options for you!
This year Bohemia Mining Days will, once again, have a version of the Old Time Photo Booth. Get dressed up to take a great memory of the festival home.
The carnival rides are in Bohemia Park, which provides a convenient bridge between Coiner Park and downtown Cottage Grove. There is parking on South 10th Street and in the park's parking lot.
All-Day Ride Bracelets are at Bi-Mart for only $22 through the 15th ($5 savings!)
