Huckleberry Heritage Festival, August 14-15, 2015 On August 14 and 15, 2015, the Historic Wallace Marketing Group (HWMG) will sponsor the 30th Annual Huckleberry Festival. Traditionally held on the third weekend in August, the festival has gone through a few name changes including Heritage Festival, and Wallace Huckleberry Heritage Festival... and sometimes it is just HuckFest for short. Each year it includes a blend of familiar and new events according to the desires of the unique band of volunteers who step forward in the spring to coordinate this major summer festival. In 2015, there is robust feast of events spread out for the enjoyment of everyone in your family.
