Sunday, May 20th and Monday, May 21st - 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

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.

 

Learn about the May-pole dance with our staff, and participate in old-fashioned games and races! Reacquaint yourself with the historic site by taking a guided tour, and explore the buildings by taking part in a treasure hunt! On Sunday, take part in the scarecrow making contest for your chance to have your entry stay up in the Huble garden all summer long!

 

Participate in making ice cream and butter on both days, and watch the blacksmith hard at work in his shop!

 

Join Ashlee in the garden as she plants some of the vegetables in the garden, and learn about the potatoes we're planting for our fall Potato Festival event. 

 

Enjoy great local music on both Sunday with Saltwater Hank and Big Fancy, and welcome back Saltwater Hank for the Monday as well! Visit the General Store to browse a new selection of locally made goods, and take 10% off all Watkins products this weekend! Pack a picnic, or purchase a delicious lunch from the barbeque. 

Finally, come meet the new animals of the homestead - the rabbits, chickens, and ducks are all awaiting your arrival! Don't forget we're dog friendly, which means you can bring the pooch!

Huble Homestead is located 40km north of Prince George, just off Highway 97 on Mitchell Road. Admission is by donation.
