Saturday afternoon is the Annual Vintage Fair and on Sunday evening actor Jim Belushi and rhythm and soul group Duke Street will hold a concert to raise money to help rebuild the mill.
The Butte Creek Mill was destroyed in a fire on December 25th, 2015.
Butte Creek Mill owner Bob Russell recently dropped by NBC5 News studios to explain how Belushi got involved. “He said, ‘If there’s anything I can do, let me know.’ Well, before you know it they called back and said, ‘Why don’t we do a concert?’ So he picked this weekend because he was open and it’s a busy weekend because we have our vintage fair on Saturday the 14th and the concert’s on Sunday the 15th and so it’s evolved into a pretty big deal,” said Russell.
The Vintage Fair is from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday, May 14 at the mill. The Rebuild the Mill Concert is at nearby Eagle Creek Estate Sunday evening. Music starts at 7, but the gates open at 5:30.
