Miners' Memorial Day Festival

The 2010 Miners' Memorial Day Festival continued its annual growth with record numbers of participants.  Many thousands of visitors came to enjoy the fun, food, music, crafts. and the cars and motorcycles on display.  More than 400 show cars overflowed the assigned display areas on Sunday, but were accommodated by using an additional two blocks of Graham Avenue and the parking areas and side streets along it.  Saturday's bike show hosted almost twice as many motorcycles as the previous year.

The weather cooperated except for a quick thunder shower Saturday night, which cleared off just in time for the fireworks show.  The Eureka Coal Heritage foundation is proud to host this family-friendly event.  Together with cooperating groups and individuals, both old and new, planning is underway for another banner event next Father's Day weekend.

2010-sponsors The Eureka Coal Heritage Foundation expresses its most sincere appreciation to all the sponsors, volunteers, and participants who helped make the weekend a rousing success. The funding for all events, entertainment and support activities comes from donations of local organizations and individuals. Their continued generosity, especially in these trying economic times, speak highly of their willingness to help commemorate the heritage of the area.

Please visit the Miners' Day Gallery 2010 for an idea of the festivities enjoyed by the participants (or perhaps try to spot yourselves among the throng if you were lucky enough to attend).

Information on the June, 2011 Miners' Memorial Day will begin to be posted on this website beginning next January. We look forward to providing more fun and entertainment than ever before as the celebration continues its strong growth. Hope to see you here next year!
