Huckleberry Heritage Festival 2010
in Historic Wallace Idaho

Jump to Link Table

On August 20 and 21, 2010, the Wallace Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the town's traditional "third weekend in August" festival. Originally called the Huckleberry Festival, it spent a year or two as the Heritage Festival, and is now known as the Huckleberry Heritage Festival... or 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 2010, there is robust feast of events spread out for the enjoyment of everyone in your family, plus many events to commemorate the Great Fire of 1910, honor the lives lost fighting this and other forest fires, and recognize the changes made in forest fire management resulting from this confageration that burned three million acres in northern Idaho. Festival hours are 10 AM to 8 PM on Friday and Saturday, complete with evening street music. click to open letter size PDF poster in separate window
