Monday, July 1 - 10:30am to 4:00pm
Step back in time and celebrate July 1st the old-fashioned way!
Get decked out in your most patriotic of gear and head to Huble Homestead to help us celebrate our country’s birthday all day long!
Our old-fashioned Dominion Day celebrations kick off with a pancake breakfast that runs from 10:00 to 12:00! Take a self-led or guided tour to learn the history of the historic site. Be sure to peruse our new exhibit, Home(stead) on Native Land, which discusses Lheidli T'enneh history in Prince George, and with the Huble family.
Take part in heritage demonstrations such as ice cream making and butter making with our staff, and learn all about cheese making with resident expert Tracey Johnson of Cheeseneeds.com. Dave from Silvertree Woodworking will also be out with the pole lathe, which you can see in action! Come out in the morning to enjoy some live music from the Down River Ramblers at 11:00 AM and 12:00 PM.
Pick up your "passport" and explore the historic site to "visit" all the provinces and territories, or get your treasure hunt and seek the clues for your prize! If you're feeling competitive, you can compete in the eating contests at 12:30, or take part in the old-fashioned races at 1:00! Play some old-fashioned games, and make a bookmark or festive decoration in the Welcome Barn!
Treat yourself to a slice of birthday cake, on us, at two different points throughout the day. You can bring a picnic to enjoy beside the scenic Fraser River, or get a hot dog or hamburger lunch from the barbeque - your choice!
Don't forget the General Store is open for sweet treats and locally made items! Take 10% off all wooden items, ranging from toys to furniture.
