Raise the roof at Yates Mill!

Come enjoy a finger lickin’ Chickin Pickin’ at Yates Mill – and help us raise a new roof!

Yates Mill Associates is hosting a barbecue at Historic Yates Mill County Park to raise money to replace our leaky roof.

When: 2 pm-6 pm, Saturday, May 19 (rain or shine)
Where: Historic Yates Mill County Park (bring a chair or picnic blanket)
How much: $25 per ticket. Ticket sales end May 2!
Why: Because you’ll have a great time while you help YMA keep Yates Mill open for our community.

Tickets are available NOW through May 2 at the Finley Center at Historic Yates Mill County Park, or by emailing Yates Mill Associates ( or calling us (919-833-0205). They’re also on sale during corn-grinding weekend this Saturday and Sunday (April 21-22); visit our souvenir tent outside the mill.

Your ticket buys you a plate heaped with chicken and pork barbecue, sweet potatoes, baked beans, slaw and – of course – cornbread, plus dessert and tea.

It’ll also be another corn-grinding weekend, so come a little early to take a tour of Yates Mill with costumed interpreters. When the mill tours end at 4 pm, we’ll keep you entertained with live music.

Our generous pitmaster, Jim Kellenberger, and volunteer cornbread gourmands from Yates Mill Associates are generously providing all the food at no cost to YMA, so the entire price of your ticket will go toward replacing the leaky roof on Yates Mill. It’s a great deal for everyone!

Come on out to Yates Mill and join us for delicious food, good music and great times with your neighbors!
