Experience the sights and sounds of Kansas milling, at the Old Mill Museum’s Millfest, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 2 and from 12 to 5 p.m. Sunday May 3, in Lindsborg when the region’s oldest flour mill springs to life once again. Millers direct operations, as visitors ages 13 and up tour the 100 year old mill in action. Admission is $2 for adults, $1 for ages 6-12, and under 6 are free. Admission includes a mill tour for those ages 13 and up. Tours are limited to this group as a safety precaution. A viewing area outside the mill is available for those under 13, with tours for younger children at 5 p.m. when the machinery is turned off.
Area artists demonstrate traditions such as blacksmithing, quilting, wood-carving, rope-making, basketry, wheat-weaving and more.
This year’s Millfest Quilt Show features quilts from the McPherson Quilt Guild. On Sunday enjoy free carriage rides with Country Boys Carriage of Newton. Buddy’s Barbecue and Homemade Ice Cream will be served throughout the event.
