Tours begin every ten minutes. During Millfest, guides and millers walk visitors through the mill with all the machinery in motion.You must be 13 or older to tour the mill while in operation. For families with small children, a tour is offered at 5:00 p.m. Lively harmonies of Americana folk music will be provided by regional musicians. A quilt show in the 1904 Swedish Pavilion, wood carvers, and wheat and fiber art weaving exhibitors will be ready and willing to take you back in time. Experience a one-room schoolhouse with slates and chalk. Challenge your dexterity with old fashioned hoops and stilts. These are just some of the sights and sounds to retrace the steps of a bygone era. Millfest would not be complete without great barbecue. Both days, enjoy Buddy's BBQ and homemade ice cream.
