The 44th Algonquin Mill Fall Festival will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 10-12, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The annual event is held at the Mill Complex, four miles south of Carrollton, Ohio on State Route 332. Thousands of fall foliage seekers, craft lovers and history buffs converge at the festival each year to step back in time, and revel in the sights and sounds of autumn in Ohio.
Visitors can explore a steam-powered flouring mill and sawmill, old time print shop, NYC Railroad station and HO model layout, antique cars and tractors, steam powered engines and an art and photo show. There will be horse-drawn wagon rides, and for the kids: pony rides, mini train rides on Saturday and Sunday, a miniature barn raising, face painting, sand art and farm animals.
The festival also hosts the talents of wood carvers, soap makers, blacksmiths, candle dippers, broom makers, dulcimer makers, weavers, quilters, and chair caning experts. Various demonstrations and historical skills will be on display throughout the event.
And you won’t leave hungry! A variety of foods are made and served on the grounds, including pancakes, sausage gravy and biscuits, chicken barbecue, pork and sauerkraut, chili, bean soup, sandwiches and snacks. Have a sweet tooth? Enjoy cookies, apple dumplings, sorghum and cider. And be sure to sample the fresh bread and apple butter, and take home a jar of pickles, stone ground cornmeal, whole wheat or buckwheat flour!
