We look forward to many exciting events at the Red Mill Museum in 2024! Visit our website often to get updates on our spring and summer events schedule. Be sure to follow our Facebook and Instagram pages to stay up-to-date on everything at the Red Mill Museum Village!
Please note that starting September 2nd we will be closed to the public as we prepare for the Haunted Mill which opens on Friday October 4th.

Haunted Volunteers Needed!

If you're not afraid of making a scene . . . then we want you on our team!

We are now looking for volunteers to help with all aspects of Haunted from painting walls to painting faces. Eight nights of scares need scores of volunteers to help make this year's event another frightening success! We need help building, setting up, acting, doing makeup and hair, cleaning up and more. Support the Red Mill Museum Village's biggest fundraiser of the year while having fun, making friends and scaring people!

Fab Fridays!

No camp? No problem!

Visit the Red Mill Museum Village on Fridays this summer (10 am-4pm) where you'll get to enjoy not only 200+ years of history but also have some family-friendly fun at our fab mobile makerspace.

We'll be rolling the Tinker Trike out every Friday to give visitors of all ages a chance to build, create and explore. Upcoming Fab Fridays will also feature a blacksmith in the forge & other occasional costumed interpreters!
Free with admission & remember, members get in free!

*Please note: the Tinker Trike will not come out on rainy days but the rest of the grounds will still be open.

Summer Concert Series

The summer concert series is back!

Get ready to dance to live music and have some fun in our beautiful quarry pavilion all summer long. Admission is $5 per person at the door. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

High in the Mid 80s: CANCELED

Get Footloose at the Pavilion!

We are very sorry to say that the band unexpectedly lost their guitarist on Wednesday morning. There will not be a concert on Saturday, July 20th.

Jamaica Vybz Reggae

You don't have to wait in vain for live reggae music in Clinton . . . just until Sunday, then we can get together and feel all right. Dance to roots, rock, reggae with the Jamaica Vybz Reggae band at 3--students from the Clinton Music Studios will warm the crowd up starting at 2:00pm. Food & beverages will be available for purchase and make sure you get yourself a 50/50 ticket! This event is held under the Pavilion rain or shine! See you Sunday July 21st, tickets are only $5 at the door.

Hands-On History

Save the date: Sunday September 1st from 11-3pm for Hands-On History!

This day of family-focused, costumed living history interpretation and demonstrations will highlight the "village" portion of our grounds (forge, schoolhouse, log cabin, etc.).

Experience history by using the tools, completing the tasks and playing the games of childhood from the Colonial era to the beginning of the 1900s. Children and their adults will get to try their hands at essential historic activities including candle making, wood working and wool carding, spinning and weaving. There will be plenty of fun to be had with our water bucket relay and ice cream churning. Keep following our website and social media for more details as they are confirmed!

Haunted Mill: Unidentified Frightening Objects
