Mill around the Mill

Don’t just do the same old thing this weekend! You can be part of history this Friday night.

  • The dedication of the Hayden Flour Mill happens this Friday from 5 – 10 p.m. with three musical acts, tours and more than 55 vendor booths.
  • The dedication ceremony happens at 6 p.m. and includes Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community President Diane Enos, the Tempe City Council, Downtown Tempe Community and the Rio Salado Foundation. There may be some surprise special guests with links to the city’s founding past, too.

Jared and the Mill, a band that named itself after the building, will perform starting at 6:45 p.m. The group plays instruments that might have been used by people who lived in the 1870s, when the flour mill was built, such as washboards, banjos, accordions and drums. They blend old tyme with modern style for a fresh folk-pop sound. Take a listen at: httpa://
