Miners' Memorial Day Festival





Thanks for Helping Celebrate Our 16th Annual Festival!

Father's Day Weekend June 18-21, 2015

Despite some threatening skies and a few showers we had another very successful 2015 festival! Thanks to all who participated. And special thanks to our sponsors and our all-volunteer staff without whom the festival could be held.

The Miners' Day Festival is sponsored by the Eureka Coal Heritage Foundation with assistance from WAVE (Windber Area Visioning Experience), the Windber Museum volunteers and the Windber Hotel staff.  It is an annual event to honor the coal miners who worked and died in the mines, growing from a small parade on main street to the current 4-day street festival. Visitors from around Southwestern Pa. and beyond come to enjoy events including car, motorcycle, and truck/ATV shows with live entertainment; street dances each night featuring area bands; fireworks; food and craft vendors; children’s petting zoo and games; parade and other fun family activities.

This event is designed to celebrate our rich heritage in coal and family values.  Good, clean entertainment for the entire family! And this year the festival is geared up for another huge success.

Of course, none of this can be accomplished without the generous support of our sponsors. We invite you to visit and support the many sponsors from our 'Festival Sponsors' list.  Without their support this event would not be possible.  THANK YOU SPONSORS!!
