Come on up for our 6th Annual Schweitzer Huckleberry Festival! We’ll be celebrating all things huckleberry with a huckleberry pancake breakfast, live music for the family, huckleberry crafts and treats, a huckleberry pie eating contest and all kinds of kid’s activities!
Of course, all the usual activities will be available too: Hiking, biking, chairlift rides, climbing wall, disc golf, zip line, sluice box, and more! All hikes and picking excursions are dependent on ripe berry availability on Schweitzer property. Come on up for a day of family fun!
