Old Miner's Day



Every year the historic silver mining camp of Chloride gets together with hundreds of visitors to honor the memory of the hard rock miners who came to Chloride looking for their share of gold, silver and other precious minerals during the 1860’s. Grab your cowboy hat and your best gal and join the fun at his year’s celebration which is set for Saturday, October 20th.

Celebrating begins at 9 a.m., and late parade sign-ups start at 10 a.m.in the Town Hall on Payroll Avenue. The Chloride Historical Society’s Cyanide Springs is the backdrop for the first rough and tough gunfight performance at 11 a.m. At “High Noon” the always hilarious parade marches down Tennessee Avenue. At 1 p.m. enjoy another wild west gunfight again in Cyanide Springs. Parade awards and the raffle ticket drawing start after the gunfights at the Town Hall.

Besides vendors, and live music, everyone will find something of interest to do in Chloride. History buffs can visit the 1800’s jail on Merrimac Avenue, check out the old bank vault and gas stations on Tennessee Avenue or wonder by the old train station. Shoppers will have fun visiting the local silver smith, antique store, the Arizona State Visitor Center, saloons, restaurants, and shops that have everything from jewelry, collectibles, plus local and Arizona made gifts. A trip to the petroglyphs and world famous Roy Purcell Murals is just over a mile east of town. Check with the visitor center for directions.

Chloride is located 23 miles north of Kingman, Arizona and 80 miles south of Las Vegas, Nevada. Follow Highway 93 to County Route 125, turn east four miles.
