BLACK DIAMOND LABOR DAYS 

HISTORY

A hometown, old-fashioned family celebration!

Before WWII, the Labor Day Celebration was a Fourth of July celebration and had begun as a way for the miners' families to celebrate the holiday.

 

Because the company owned all the property in town, the miners had to go to the bosses and ask to have the celebration.  They agreed but miners had to pay for it themselves.  

After the war, families started to travel and the Fourth of July celebration became a Labor Day celebration.  It was through the efforts of Evan Morris, Ann & Carl Steiert and many others that the Labor Day celebration become the old fashioned, family orientated festival it is today.  The Black Diamond Labor Days committee continues to support this tradition each year.
