Event Details

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, car show, 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 Echo Brewing Beer, Wild Cider and wine from the Infinite Monkey Theorem winery, based out of Denver. 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. New this year, Infinite Monkey Theorem is bringing their tasting bus to Miners Day so you can see what they're all about! 

The food vendors will include: Boulder Snowie, El Sabor Jerezano, Frederick High School Girls Softball Team, Have Treats Will Travel, I Scream Colorado, Georgia Boys BBQ, Maui Wowi Smoothies, Pete's Place, Rinn United Methodist Church, Scorching Brick Catering, and Slawpy Barn.
