Wave goodbye to winter and celebrate spring at Huble Homestead's two-day season opener!

Spring on the Homestead

Celebrate the coming of spring and the season opening of Huble Homestead with classic spring activities.

CLICK HERE FOR THE SUNDAY SCHEDULE & HERE FOR THE MONDAY SCHEDULE.

Join us for the first event of the 2019 season to help us mark the coming of spring! Learn all about the different tasks a pioneer family like the Hubles would take on to ensure the rest of their year was a success. Help us welcome our new animals to the homestead - the rabbits, and chickens will be awaiting your arrival! The sheep won't be arrive in time for the weekend, but you'll be able to see them starting next week!

 

Watch or participate in heritage activities such as the May-pole dance, planting the garden, and making butter and ice cream. Spend some time at the blacksmith shop to watch him work and perhaps have a chat! Make your way across the site to take in wood lathe demonstrations and perhaps enjoy a meal from the BBQ!

Help us kick off our celebrating 30 years of Huble Homestead by checking out the launch of our new year-long exhibit that talks about the opening of the park. While you're in the barn, be sure to stop by the PG Beekeepers display! Fresh off celebrating The Day of the Honey Bee, they'll be on hand to answer any questions you may have! Also on Sunday, flex your creative muscles in the scarecrow making contest for your chance to have your entry stay up in the Huble garden all summer long! For those coming out Monday, there'll be more May Pole dances on the schedule!

Be sure to stop by the garden to find out more about the vegetables that will be planted in the Huble garden for the season, and about the heritage varieties of potatoes being grown for this fall’s Potato Festival. Afterwards, relax with a picnic basket brought from home, or buy lunch from the BBQ. Don’t forget to check out the General Store and browse a new selection of locally made goods, and take 10% off all Watkins products this weekend!
