2018 Bohemia Mining Days Festival
Covered Bridge Tours
Saturday, July 21st
“Bohemia City” Train Depot
What: Cottage Grove is proud to be known as the Covered Bridge Capitol of The West with six covered bridges within a 10-mile radius. Two are inside the city limits (one is the only remaining covered railroad bridge west of the Mississippi River) and four are in the beautiful surrounding countryside. South Lane Wheels donates its 18-passenger bus and driver, so the costumed and personable tour guides can share their stories and knowledge of the bridges and the Cottage Grove community. Each participant receives a keepsake at the end of the tour.
When: The two-hour tour departs from the “Bohemia City train station (next to the bathroom building in the basketball court parking lot) in Coiner Park at 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.. (A third tour at 6:00 p.m. is possible if there is a demand for it.) The approximately two-hour tour allows time for participants to get off the bus and take photos at each bridge.
Cost: $10 per person and paid in advance by Friday, July 6th at 5:00 p.m. Tickets may be purchased online or by phone. To pay over the phone using a check or credit/debit card, please call 541-942-5064.

BMD Board announces operational changes & entertainment line-up
Enjoy a delicious lunch and a cold beverage in air conditioned comfort while you watch this documentary film about the history of the Bohemia Mining District. It has aired more than a dozen times on Oregon Public Broadcasting.
Bohemia Mining Days draws thousands to “Bohemia City” in Coiner Park for three days of fun, frolic and fraternizin' in a neighborly way each summer. If you'd like to have your business or organization be seen by all these folks, or if perhaps you'd like to just throw us a few bucks to help out, then we've got some options for you!
Saturday, July 21 is Costume Day at BMD.
We encourage everyone to show up on Saturday in a costume and compete in our Costume Contest at 1:00 p.m. on the Gazebo Stage. We provide a cash prize in each category: men, women and children.
