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!

BMD Express Train

Sponsored by Pacific Power, City of Cottage Grove, and Bohemia Sunrisers Kiwanis Club of Cottage Grove

As BMD events continue to expand beyond Coiner Park with a stronger focus on cultural heritage, we have added a (track-less) train Friday through Sunday to serve as a people mover between the festival’s key venues. It is also a fun way to play the new Historical Treasure Hunt.

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.
