The four-day family-friendly event, held on the third weekend in July, transforms the city park into Bohemia City featuring music and entertainers, demonstrations, contests, themed meals and vendor booths offering food, beverages, community information, unique gifts and handcrafted items.
There are offsite events that include an old fashioned ice cream social and quilt show, three parades, a carnival, and a Victorian melodrama. You can also visit Cottage Grove’s Historic Downtown District, charming covered bridges, museums and area wineries. On Sunday morning drive up into the Bohemia Mining District for a genuine miner’s all-you-can eat breakfast that is as good as the scenic Cascade Mountain vistas are beautiful.
The Apple Inn B&B will send you off with a hearty and delicious breakfast and pamper you with treats and a hot tub soak when you return from your adventures each day in The Grove.
