Miners' Memorial Day Festival

The 2012 Miners' Memorial Day Weekend Celebration!


The 13th Annual Miners’ Memorial Day Weekend Festival held this year June 15th , 16th , 17th (Father’s Day Weekend) was another huge success!  Great weather, large crowds, lots of special events, good food, fantastic music, lots of dancing, fireworks, and good old fashioned family fun made this one of the best festivals ever. If you want to see some of what you might have missed, check out our photo gallery on the menu at left.

None of this could have happened without our valued sponsors and volunteers.  We are proud of our community, proud of our heritage, and proud of our sponsors who had the foresight to join us to present this wonderful event.  Each year we have been blessed by their generosity that has enabled us to offer good, quality entertainment for all members of your family.  We are proud to offer not only Windber residents, but visitors from near and far,  a taste of old- fashioned hometown hospitality.

This year's festival was dedicated to our good friend and fellow ECHF Board Member Wendy Hollern Spencer, who sadly succumbed to cancer after a long and trying period.  Wendy was one of the original co-founders of the Miner's Memorial Day Festival, and helped grow it into the current highly successful event.  She will be sorely missed.

And once again, MANY THANKS to our generous sponsors!
