To celebrate Bohemia Mining Days' 60th Anniversary, BMD Festival Coordinator Cindy Weeldreyer interviewed former BMD planners, rummaged through memorabilia stashed away in files, and looked through scrapbooks looking for nuggets from the past to honor our “Diamond Jubilee”, a significant milestone in BMD history.
One of those "nuggets" is the Ugly Dog Contest from the 1980's and 1990's. When previous organizers were asked about it, they said it was a fun and popular activity in their era.
Dog lover Linda Sexton stepped up to organize the event for us this year as a fundraiser to help with festival operational costs.
For more information, please call Linda at 541-913-9586.
Trophies awarded for first place in each category. Ribbons awarded for second & third place winners. Each entry receives a raffle ticket for sponsor-donated prizes.

Registration forms can be downloaded here. Registration fees can be paid with cash or check only. All proceeds benefit festival operations.
For insurance reasons, any dog that is not friendly toward people and other dogs and is not under the owner’s control at all times will be asked to leave the park. The City of Cottage Grove requires all dogs to be leashed in city parks.
