Summer in full swing at Huble Homestead

Summer is in full swing and so are fun activities at Huble Homestead Historic Site. The return of events this season provides plenty of opportunity to visit and enjoy special activities, including the upcoming Hidden History, Taste of the Past, and Homestead Days events.

Every place has a story, and you’re invited to learn more about Huble Homestead’s at Hidden History on Friday & Saturday, July 8 & 9. Celebrating Historic Places Days, the two-day event runs 11:00 to 3:00 and takes visitors beyond the exhibits and behind the scenes to learn more about the displays, hear about the restoration of the house and park, and see artifacts not normally on show. Find out more about the Huble Diaries project, have fun with a craft and treasure hunt, and enjoy lunch while you’re discovering the historic places in your backyard.

Taste of the Past on Saturday, July 16 is a celebration of heritage food skills, and promises to be delicious! Watch and help staff as they make classic food items like cheese, butter, ice cream, and perogies, then enjoy samples! If you miss out on the tasters, try again on Homestead Days July 31 or August 1, when food and other heritage demonstrations round out a weekend filled with old-fashioned games and contests! The full schedule of events is available at hublehomestead.ca, with activities planned through the end of summer.

The historic site is open 10:00 to 5:00 daily until September 5. Visitors can participate in one of the daily self-led activities, request a guided tour, or explore solo. Visit the General Store for locally made items, your favourite old-fashioned candies, pie, ice cream treats, and lunch from the barbeque, or enjoy a picnic and lawn games in the park’s open green spaces.
