Miners Day is one of Frederick’s premier annual community events drawing thousands of people to Downtown Frederick for family-oriented fun and entertainment throughout the day. While the event has grown in increasing popularity since its inception in 2003, it continues to offer a small-town feel in celebration of our community’s mining heritage and provides a rich and lively environment for residents, businesses, schools, and community groups from throughout the region to come together for a day of fun. The event includes a dynamic parade, exhibitor booths, food/refreshment vendors, activities, contests, and live entertainment throughout the day. Per tradition, Miners Day concludes with a spectacular evening concert and fireworks display!

Stop by the Miners Day beer garden to enjoy refreshing local brews. The beer garden is cash only and you must bring your ID to drink (no exceptions). The area is open to all ages, but only folks with an ID will be permitted to drink.

In coordination with Frederick High School sports and Mile High Golf Carts, you can get to your Miners Day destination in a flash! From 7a.m.-7p.m.,  golf carts will be roaming the event area, including the parade start, Crist Park and Centennial Park to take you where you need to be. In the early morning, be on the lookout for carts at the Thunder Valley K-8 parking lot and between Crist Park and Centennial Park. The carts will be available all day. This is a fundraiser for FHS teams, so be sure to tip your drivers!

Vendors at Miners Day

Part of what makes Miners Day so great is all of the wonderful vendors we have that fill the park with fun and interesting displays! New location in 2018! We are expanding the event with exciting activities in both Crist Park and Centennial Park. All of the great exhibitors and vendors will be located in Centennial Park from 11 am to 5 pm.
