The hard rock mining contest is a big draw for the Apache Leap Mining Festival. With a $2,000 purse, it is attractive to active and retired miners.

SambAz will entertain and delight the audience at the annual Apache Leap Mining Festival.

On March 8 and 9 in Superior the 26th annual Apache Leap Mining Festival will be celebrating the Magma Arizona Railroad.

Learn about mining; past, present and future. Watch the grueling mining competition as entrants show their skills with spiking, sawing, mucking and drilling, while competing for a $2000 cash purse!

Bring your Chihuahua and enter your pooch in the Chihuahua race.

The free entertainment line-up includes Wyatt Earp, performing an excerpt from his stage play “Wyatt Earp – The Story Hollywood Never Told”, the Arizona Ghostriders, Apache Crown Dancers, award winning musician Jim Pipkin, playing and singing “Americana, Sour Mash for the Soul”, Las Vegas entertainer Bobby Cook, and the breathtaking Samba performance by the SambAZ dance group, dressed in Vegas style attire!

Enjoy DJ David Sinteral, a carnival, an old fashioned parade, historian speakers, kid’s panning for copper, the mining history trail, abandoned mine safety exhibit, car and motorcycle show, and more. The 74th Street Band will play Saturday night while folks dance in the street or sip a beer in the beer garden. Great food and retail vendors will line the streets. All FREE except vendors and carnival. The festival is located just 30 minutes east of Apache Junction on Main Street. Join us for fun and DISCOVER SUPERIOR, the gateway to the Copper Corridor. Hosted by the Superior Chamber of Commerce with Premier Sponsor Resolution Copper. For more information call 520-689-0200 or 602-625-3151 or visit the website at www.superiorarizonachamber.org.
