Huntley Homesteader Days

jul 12-13, 2024 at times listed below


In 1964, the Huntley Project Lions Club organized the first Homesteader Days. The two-day celebration is held each year on the second weekend in July as a memorial to homesteaders who settled the area. The event honors a hardy breed of pioneer who came on foot, by covered wagon, or by immigrant train to carve out a fertile valley in a land of sagebrush and greasewood.
