For Ore Cart Races

Two years ago, 2021 saw the birth of a new event at the Bohemia Mining Days, the first ever Ore Cart Races. 8 teams of miners and tommyknockers raced into the history books. 

Last year, we expanded the field to include up to 24 teams for even more fun.

Registration dates coming soon!


The Bohemia Mining Days Board & Festival Coordinator Scott Borgioli are proud to announce the 2022 Festival Theme, TIMBER = NEW GOLD
The theme reflects an aspect of local history, and we’re excited to see the community’s enthusiasm and creative interpretation of this year’s theme.

It takes a Village!
