    Held on the last Saturday in September, the Delta Harvest Festival is a village wide celebration of the fall harvest. The mill is open for tours and treats, with the Friends of the Mill table featuring a variety of home baking, preserves, vegetable produce, crafts, plants, dried flowers, all donated by friends of the mill. 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.
