Algonquin Mill Festival

October 6th, 2008

If you live in NE Ohio, this coming weekend (October 10-12) is the Algonquin Mill Festival. It’s always a must visit for us every year. If you’re free head down for a few hours. We’ll be heading down Sunday afternoon for sure.

It’s a great little festival with steam engines large & small, a steam powered saw mill which is incredible and kind of scary all at the same time. They sell delicious pancakes made with freshly ground flour from the mill, so make sure you save room for those. They also have horses pressing sorghum that’s boiled down into sorghum molasses that you can buy (which makes a delicious sorghum pecan pie – no corn syrup needed).

Anyone else have any local fall festival that’s a must visit?

    What a great old mill. We have one in our area called the Clifton Mill.

    How fun, there is a place in Utica, Ohio that’s called the Ye Olde Mill which is the home of Velvet Icecream!

    Hi, This sound like so much fun.
    I have family in Avon lake and Loraine, that I visit. But do not know if this is near them. I so love Lake Erie. It is wonderful there.
