Welcome to Miner’s Picnic–a picnic, a tradition, and tons of fun for everyone since 1895! All are invited to enjoy a picnic lunch on the beautiful grounds of Empire Mine State Historic Park. Cool green lawns, formal gardens, live music, costumed docents, games and activities await you. This is the one day a year you are welcome to bring your own picnic inside the historic core, which has been a tradition since the early days when the mine was in operation. This tradition originated as a benefit for miners’ widows and orphans. Please consider bringing your re-usable utensils and plates, to keep trash and waste to a minimum.
