Spring on the Homestead

In light of the growing concerns around COVID-19, and in accordance with the order put forward by our provincial health officer, this event has been cancelled for 2020. If you have any questions, or require further clarification, please do not hesitate to reach out

Join us for the first event of the 2020 season to help us mark the changing of the seasons! 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 sheep, rabbits, and chickens will be awaiting your arrival!

Watch or participate in old-fashioned activities such as the May-pole dance and making butter and ice cream. Find out which vegetables will be planted in the Huble garden this season, and learn about the heritage varieties of potatoes being grown in anticipation of this fall’s Potato Festival. 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!

Reacquaint yourself with the historic site by taking a guided tour, and explore the buildings by taking part in a treasure hunt. 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!

Scarecrow at Huble Homestead

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, 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 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.
