Join the Board

If you'd like to become a part of Bohemia Mining Days, there may be a place for you on the BMD Board of Directors. 



Producing the annual celebrations is a year-round effort and a labor of love. The Bohemia Mining Days Festival Board meets monthly throughout the year on the 2nd Thursday.  As the festival approaches the board meets twice in May on the 2nd and 4th Thursday and weekly in June and July.

We are a fun bunch who share a common goal to ensure this celebration of Cottage Grove’s early history continues for generations to come. We are a working board and successfully employ our talents, experiences and strengths in a subcommittee structure to manage all the aspects of producing The Grove’s biggest event of the year. 

Our subcommittees are: Fundraising, Marketing & Communication, Parades, Logistics, Food, and Vendor Coordination.
