Thorp Mill Events

Each year, members of the Thorp Mill Town Historical Preservation Society are involved in a number of local events, including Community Day, Fall Open House, and our Antique Fair, but the highlight of the season is the Annual Dinner & Auction.

Annual Dinner & Auction

The Annual Thorp Mill Dinner and Auction is held every year during Memorial Day weekend. Hundreds of items are donated by the community in support of this one-of-a-kind historic Thorp treasure, and auction-goers are treated to BBQ, local beer and wine, and of course, strawberry shortcake. It’s the greatest event of the holiday weekend, so come for the fun and bid on an item of your choice to support the Mill!

Members of the Thorp Mill Town Historical Preservation Society will receive ticket order forms in the mail prior to the event, and tickets for the general public will be available at the Ellensburg Chamber of Commerce, Cle Elum Bakery, or from a board member near you. You can also call (509) 964-9640 to order by phone, and tickets will be available online via Brown Paper Tickets as the event draws closer.
