Coal Miner's Day

Friday June 21st 2019 04:00 pm - Saturday June 22nd 2019 05:00 pm
Melcher - Dallas, Melcher, Iowa

The annual celebration of Coal Miners Day began in 1975, and is held every June to commemorate the spirit of the founding residents. Many current residents in the Melcher-Dallas area are descendants from the first coal miners and residents.

For those that resided or attended school here but have moved away, Coal Miners Day is a time for class reunions, gatherings, and visits.

The Melcher-Dallas Fire Department organizes the celebration and fund-raising, with many area residents joining in with a Parade, BBQ, Bake Sales, Bingo, Music, Contests, Mud Volleyball, Golf Tournament, and so much more held at the park in the middle of the city square.
