Where Neighbors Meet for Friendship and Fun
The Coquille Indian Tribe and The Mill Casino-Hotel & RV Park are proud to support many community events throughout the year. Here are just a few of the highlights:
July 3 Fireworks
You can see fireworks almost anywhere on the Fourth of July. The Coquille Tribe’s Mill Casino-Hotel & RV Park beats everybody to the punch each year, with a spectacular show the night before Independence Day. Non-reserved seating is free along the boardwalk. Food and beverages are available, and a free shuttle ferries guests to and from the Pony Village Mall parking lot.
The annual return of spawning salmon has always been a joyful and reverent event for Oregon’s Native Tribes. In modern times, the Coquille people celebrate with a family-friendly event showcasing Indian culture. Dancers, drummers, storytellers and flutists offer free performances daily outside The Mill Casino-Hotel & RV Park. A marketplace features traditional wares and foods. Canoe races, activities for children, cultural demonstrations and educational exhibits round out the event. (And the salmon is yummy!) The Mill website
BBQ Blues & Brews
Springtime on the Oregon Coast wouldn’t be complete without BBQ Blues & Brews on the Bay. This three-day festival, sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society, features savory edibles, locally crafted beers, and sizzling blues. The Mill website
Each summer the Tribe hosts an Adult Golf Fundraiser Tournament to pay for golf instruction for dozens of area youth. Held at Watson Ranch Golf, the 2016 tournament raised more than $30,000 for Tribally sponsored youth golf events.
