 Richmond’s second annual Millstone Festival is coming back to the downtown historic district on Saturday, Oct. 1st from 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM. Named for downtown’s newest, “pocket park” that opened in 2019, the festival will celebrate the community and its long history in the milling industry, and serve as a much-needed reprieve from a difficult year.

The second annual Millstone Festival will take over the downtown space with fun community activities, live music, and great local food and drinks. A homebrew contest, car-show, and chili cook-off are just a few of the day’s scheduled activities. Stay tuned for more information.
