    For many years The Delta Mill Society has hosted this October event. In 2015, the event was moved to the Saturday before Thanksgiving (to make it easier for volunteer participation). It features a sale of home baking, preserves, vegetable produce, crafts, plants, dried flowers, all donated by members of the community. Visitors arrive from Ottawa, Kingston, Brockville and many other centres to enjoy the country atmosphere of this lovely village, to purchase the sale products and to take part in the activities and demonstrations of special interest (such as blacksmithing) sponsored by the Society.

  • Christmas Lights in the Mill: Each Christmas season the Delta Mill Society installs large lighted candles and wreaths in the Mill windows and people come from many miles around to see this beautiful seasonal display. As one local business person wrote to the Society "the Mill's windows glow like small jewels on cold winter nights". This display is now paired with Delta's Celebrating the Season with thousands of lights in Lower Beverley Lake Park.
