Description of Event:

The huckleberry, which grows wild in the high mountainous areas of the region, is a tasty purple fruit unlike any other. More than 30 years ago, the Huckleberry Festival was started in the little town of Trout Creek in northwestern Montana by a group of artists who sought a spot to sell their creations. Vendors of freshly-picked huckleberries liked the opportunity to sell their wares, too. The Huckleberry Festival, put on by volunteers, has grown through the years. People flock to taste and purchase the berries, sold on the park grounds to benefit the festival. Food vendors feature the tasty ""purple gold"" in huckleberry ice cream cones, on cheesecake, in drinks, and even atop Polish dogs. The Trout Creek Fire Department offers its Saturday and Sunday morning huckleberry pancake breakfasts, and both children and adults bake the tastiest recipes they know for the honor of competing in the Huckleberry Dessert Contest. In addition, more than 100 arts and crafts vendors display and sell their wares at Trout Creek Community Park. Scheduled events include entertainment on stage throughout the weekend, a parade, 5K fun run, dancing under the stars, karaoke, dog agility demonstration, huckleberry homesteader pentathlon, food by community groups, a pageant, an auction, children's activities, horseshoe contest, and interfaith worship service. Hours: Friday 5pm to 9pm, Saturday 9am to 11pm, Sunday 10am to 4pm
