Old Miners' Day
- HoursAll Day
Saddle up your horse, grab your favorite gal and head to Chloride on Saturday, October 21st for the 47th annual celebration of Old Miners’ Day! This unique 1860’s silver mining camp in northwestern Arizona honors the hard rock miners who worked the more than 70 mines just east of Chloride in the Cerbat Mountains, looking for silver, gold, zinc, copper, and turquoise. Celebrating begins at 9 a.m. when the Bake Sale opens at the corner of Tennessee and Second Street. Grab a goodie and head to the Mineshaft Market, just up the street, check out the vendors and listen to live music on the porch.
Round about “High Noon” the always zany Old Miners’ Day parade wanders down Tennessee Avenue. Parade entries include antique and custom cars, floats, marching units, Shriners, animals, gunfighters, equestrians, Chloride’s VFW Post 2190, motorcycles, and other big surprises.
