Infamous Oil Well Swindle

By Cindy Weeldreyer

The BMD 2014 theme, “Swindlers, Scoundrels, Liars, and Cheats,” reflects Cottage Grove’s past experiences with a stolen post office, rigged card games and dishonorable characters coming to town winning the trust of honest citizens and miners then absconding with their hard earned money.

Pony Rides

No celebration of Cottage Grove’s early history would be complete without honoring the role horses played in Cottage Grove's earliest days.

We Need Volunteers!

Bohemia Mining Days needs volunteers to keep the festival running, and keep it free! If you would like to join in the fun, contact us for more information.

Carnival at Bohemia Park

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, Delight, and The Bookmine for only $22 until the 17th ($5 savings!)

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!

The Feud Continues!

The Feud between Slabtown and Lemati has just begun. Slabtown won in 2012. Lemati won in 2013. Who Will break the tie in 2014? ('cough' Slabtown Rules 'cough') Pick a side and join in the fun! We've got a wide assortment of contests for all ages.

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.

Beer & Wine Garden

Stacy's Covered Bridge Restaurant will again provide BMD visitors 21 or older with a classy beer and wine garden in Bohemia City on Thursday through Saturday.

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!
