Check out our Mining Exhibits Next Year after our Reorganization


NOW:   At present we are reorganizing and determined to keep this tradition alive. Our last event theme in 2017 was "The Event Too Tough to Die". The Town of Miami Boomtown Spree was last incorporated in 1993 and continues today and into the future.

We are in the planning stages for our Town of Miami Boomtown Spree Celebration Event on April 2020.

Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.

Then and Now.

The event was started back in the 1930's with high and low peaks through-out the years.

Peaking in the 1950's and 60's, and again in the 70's, 80's, and 90's. The main reason for the event was to celebrate our Mining & Western History. Many famous names came from our town and surrounding area.

One such famous personality was Jack Elam. He was born in Miami to Millard Elam and Alice Amelia Kirby. His mother died in 1922 when Jack was two years old. By 1930, he was living with his father, older sister Mildred, and their stepmother, Flossie Varney Elam.

Jack was a student at both Miami High School in Gila County and Phoenix Union High School in Maricopa County, graduating from there in the late 1930s..
