Press Release: Bohemia Mining Days' Organizers Making 2021 Plans

Bohemia Mining Days is a 62-year-old summer tradition celebrating Cottage Grove’s unique and colorful past. The festival transforms Cottage Grove’s Coiner Park into “Bohemia City” on the third weekend of July creating an enjoyable memory-making experience for people of all ages.

Recent Oregon Health Authority’s statistics show COVID-19 trends are moving in the right direction to reduce many of the current restrictions Oregonians have endured for more than a year. These encouraging trends motivate the BMD Board of Directors to make plans to produce a two-day event, July 16-17.

BMD President Don Williams says it has been a difficult year for our year-round nonprofit organization since the festival was canceled last year.

“We remain hopeful we can provide a much-needed celebration for our community this summer. We have multiple meetings each week, among our planning committees and with community leaders, to be ready if Governor Brown lifts her state of emergency and we can produce an unrestricted event for everyone to enjoy.”

Williams says the planning details-to-date will be announced at a press conference on Wednesday, March 24 at 10 am in the City Hall Council Chamber, 700 E. Main St.

Participants in the press conference will be in costume. Cottage Grove Municipal Judge Martin Fisher will swear in City Councilor Kenneth Michael Roberts as the newest "Bohemia City" Marshal.

In 2012, BMD resurrected (in a fun way) an actual 19th Century feud that for a period of time split the community into two towns.  At the press conference the Board also reveals its plans to expand the popular Slabtown v. Lemati Feud into a friendly year-round competition.
