(July 17th to July 20th)

Bohemia Mining Days celebrates Cottage Grove’s colorful history. The town went all out to celebrate the centennial of Oregon statehood in 1959. In fact, Grovers and their guests had so much fun that year, a group of civic-minded individuals determined there should be an annual celebration highlighting Cottage Grove’s interesting past… and Bohemia Mining Days was born! The family-friendly festival is organized by a board of community-minded volunteers who work closely with the Festival Coordinator throughout the year to ensure this annual summer tradition lives on for future generations to enjoy.
