Potato Festival

September 1 @ 10:00 am - November 2 @ 4:00 pm

This a-peel-ing event celebrates the mighty spud, a vegetable the Huble family once grew by the acre!

Over one hundred years ago, on the banks of the Fraser River, Annie Huble grew acres and acres of potatoes which she sold to travelers passing through the area. Today that tradition continues at Huble Homestead, where you can learn all about the heirloom potato varieties grown on site, see the garden where they were produced, and purchase your own to sample at home!

Venture out to Huble Homestead, where the spud reigns supreme! We’ve spent the summer growing different varieties of heirloom potatoes, offering you the perfect opportunity to learn more about them, as well as see, touch, and perhaps buy some!

Revert back to your childhood by taking part in potato sack races, Hot Potato, or the potato and spoon race, get creative with potato stamps, and show the crowd how it’s done in the potato peeling contest. Kick back, relax on the grass or in the shade, and enjoy the line-up of spud-tacular musicians, a special starchy lunch menu, and guided tours on what is guaranteed to be a totally tub(er)ular event!

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.
