Join us Saturday, August 14, at noon through 8:00 pm for the 47th Annual Madam Lou Bunch Day! Madam Lou Bunch Day is a family event of fun, competition and loaded with history and facts of the area. Madam Lou Bunch owned the most successful brothel (referred to as a “sporting house”) in Central City. The annual event features the famous bed races on Main Street, live entertainment, food and drinks, and ends with the Madam and Miners Ball.

Make sure to sign up for the Famous Bed Races in advance! Applications may be found at the below website. All you need to participate in this historic event is a bed team, good running shoes, and a sense of humor! We provide the official bed on wheels and open Main Street to be your race track. This event is a great advertising opportunity and community event, so be sure that your team participants wear costumes along with a sign to advertise your sponsorship. Teams also participate in the parade prior to the race to show their wares and enthusiasm. The top three teams win cash prizes.
