Homestead Days

Sunday, August 6 & Monday, August 7 - 10:30am to 4:00pm

Homestead Days box lunch auction

Our premier event that's two days of old-fashioned fun!

Join us this BC Day long weekend at Huble Homestead, when we celebrate Homestead Days, our oldest running event! We invite you to step back in time to have fun the old-fashioned way by coming out to enjoy heritage demonstrations such as ice cream and butter making, learn about cheesemaking from Tracey Johnson of, talk to our staff about their heritage projects, and learn about Iceland wool from Heimdall's Reach on the Sunday. Take part in games and races for different age groups, and cheer on the brave souls willing to participate in the eating contests!

This weekend is all about doing things the old-fashioned way, so everyone can join in the races and relays, which will have different categories for adults and children! For those who prefer to work at a different pace, a self-guided activity will be available. Old-fashioned games will also be taking place in the morning and late afternoon of both days. If you're interested in blackpowder shooting, be sure to mark Monday, August 7th on your calendar! This might also be a good day to leave poochie at home, as it can get quite loud.

Bring a lunch, or bid on the homemade lunches in the Box Lunch Social – don’t worry, the BBQ will also be running if you get outbid! Plus enjoy live music, crafts, and outdoor lawn games! Visitors can take 10% off knitted and crocheted items in the General Store all weekend long.

Huble Homestead Historic Site is a 30 minute drive north of Prince George, BC. Leave the city behind and make your way up Highway 97 for 40 kilometres, before turning off on Mitchell Road to continue another 6 kilometres down a well-maintained dirt road.

Huble Homestead is dog friendly and open daily from 10:00am to 5:00pm for guided tours and shopping in the General Store. Enjoy a picnic or purchase lunch from the BBQ as you relax in the fresh air. Admission is by donation, with a recommended amount of $10.00 per family.

We acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia.
