Madam Lou Bunch Day is festival honoring Madam Louisa Ann Bunch 1857-1935 of Central City, CO. She was the best known and most voluptuous (weighing 300 lbs) of all the Central City madams back in the old days.

Her brothel on Pine Street remained open from 1900-1916. Madam Lou Bunch Day and its bed races honor this Madam who will always be remembered in Central City. She and many of her girls helped nurse many of the miners who were sick and dying in an epidemic. Madam Lou Bunch Day is held the third Saturday every June in her honor.
