North Powder Huckleberry Festival


The North Powder Huckleberry Festival takes place annually, the last Saturday in July. In 2012, the event is July 28, the 110th birthday of the community. The festival is a lively celebration of the tasty wild berry that grows in the surrounding Blue and Wallowa Mountains and a salute to community heritage. The event features a parade, craft and food vendors, games for kids, entertainment, a puppet show and the Huckleberry Dessert Contest and Auction. In addition, the Huckleberry Hot-Rod Show-n-Shine is part of the festival and the Powder Valley All-School & Community Reunion Breakfast takes place on the school grounds that morning, with everyone welcome.  There are lots of opportunities to enjoy fresh, homemade huckleberry desserts and take home jelly or jam. A fire station dinner and an outdoor movie cap off the day of fun. The event is held in the heart of North Powder, located at exit 285 from Interstate 84, between Baker City and La Grande, in beautiful northeast Oregon.
