Grand Miners Parade

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!

The Feud Continues!

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 14-17. 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.

BMD Express Train

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.

Living History

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!

Kiddie Parade

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.
