Miners Jubilee will continue in 2014

The major events that comprise Baker City’s Miners Jubilee, including vendors in Geiser-Pollman Park, will continue as usual this July.

The Baker City Herald will schedule vendors to set up booths in the park during the annual festival that takes place the third weekend in July.

Last August the Jubilee’s main organizer, the Baker County Chamber of Commerce, announced that it would no longer serve in that role.

During a meeting Monday, 11 volunteers from several local groups decided to continue the Jubilee’s core events, including the parade and the Eastern Oregon Mining Association’s mining exhibits and contests.

Community Bank will sponsor the parade, and volunteer groups will organize the event.

Rhonda Hillman, Debra Peters and Kellie Randall will organize Jubilee button sales.

The Powder River Music Review will schedule music in the park. 

The bull and bronc riding events, which have never been part of the Chamber’s responsibilities, will continue as well.

More meetings will be scheduled to plan the 2014 Miners Jubilee.

Volunteers are also needed.

Anyone wanting to reserve space for a booth in the park should call the marketing department at the Baker City Herald at 541-523-3673.
