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.

Homicide on the Homestead: A Murder Mystery - registration required
Sunday September 16, 2018  |  12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Huble Homestead Historic Site, 15000 Mitchell Road

The perfect event for murder mystery enthusiasts interested in history and costumes!

If you couldn’t make it in June, this is your second chance to take part in an old-fashioned murder mystery! Pre-register to secure your spot in an afternoon of murder and intrigue, where you’ll take on a role from the past and solve the crime with your fellow participants!

Registrants will receive an official invitation, character assignment, and costume ideas for an event that will take them back in time to 1940s Prince George. On the event day, players arrive in period costume, receive their objectives for the game, and mingle while snacking on era-appropriate canapes as they work to catch the criminal!

Prizes are awarded for best costume, best performance, and the most money. If you correctly identify the killer you won’t leave empty handed – the same rule applies if the murderer gets away with their dastardly deed! No acting experience required, just a willingness to embrace your role! Registration will open in August.
