Magic at the Mill is Willamette Heritage Center’s largest community event, with live music, vendors, children’s activities, craft demonstrations, house and mill tours, living history, Santa, model trains, and thousands of lights all over the grounds. If you haven’t been before, it’s a “must see” event!
Would you like to go for free? If you volunteer, not only do you get to experience it while working, but Willamette Heritage Center will give you two general admission tickets, so you can bring a friend or neighbor to enjoy the festival on a night when you’re not volunteering.
Anna at Willamette Heritage Center says, “More than 6,500 visitors were hosted by WHC volunteers last year. It takes a village of people to pull this off each night and we are not able to do it without the help of a team of wonderful volunteers who come out each night to help us.”
There are many fun things for people to help out with each night; some indoors, some out; sitting or standing; there’s something for every level of ability. You can volunteer to do things like direct guests in the Mill building, greet guests in the gallery, to help with craft activities for kids. (See the volunteer sign-up form HERE for more information, or contact Erica Osorio at 503-585-7012 ext. 254 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Magic at the Mill runs from Wednesday, December 19 through Sunday, December 23 this year, 5:30 to 8:30 pm. We hope to see you there!
Tickets are available online HERE. Adults $8, youth 4-17 $5, kids under 4 are free.
