Summertime is here in the village of Manotick and that means it is time to celebrate with fresh, local strawberries, light refreshments, and jazzy live music!
Come join us here at Watson’s Mill on June 28 for our Annual Strawberry Social and you’ll be sure to have a grand time eating our delicious strawberry shortcake and enjoying the live entertainment provided by the Swamp Water Jazz Band. The Strawberry Social will be held on Sunday June 28 from 1 pm to 3 pm.
This classic event is one you do not want to miss. Come on out to eat, socialize, and enjoy the summer, and what better place to do this than at Watson’s Mill! Watson’s Mill is a unique 1860’s grist and flour mill located in Manotick, on the shores of the Rideau River. A working industrial heritage site in greater Ottawa, it has a remarkable history linked to local politics, the building of a country, and a tragic love story.
The WMMI mandate is to preserve Watson’s Mill as a working historic grist and flour mill, and a social, cultural and educational focal point for the community and visitors. The Mill is located at 5525 Dickinson Street, Historic Dickinson Square in Manotick. The Used Book Sale is open daily 10 am to 4 pm. There is free parking on-site.
