Event Details

Millfest

FIRST SATURDAY - A celebration of McPherson County history featuring a dry run of the Smoky Valley Roller Mill and other living history demonstrations. Visitors are invited to experience the sights and sounds of early Kansas flour milling at the McPherson County Old Mill Museum's annual event. During the event, only the wheels, belts and pulleys turn again at the region's oldest operational roller mill. Professional millers direct operations as visitors take tours of the one hundred year old mill in action. Across the grounds, artisans demonstrate crafts once a vital part of prairie lifestyle.

Get away to an earlier era by tasting homemade ice cream and BBQ, tapping your feet to Americana music and learning traditional arts, such as spinning and woodcarving. A quilt show will feature exquisite historic quilts at the 1904 World's Fair Swedish Pavilion. It is a weekend of family fun!

Guided tours of the mill ongoing for ages 13 and older. A viewing area outside the mill is available for those under 13. Saturday 9am - 5pm; Sunday 12noon - 5pm.
