Huck Finn Jubilee leaving High Desert

36-year tradition to continue in Ontario

VICTORVILLE • Organizers of the long-running Huck Finn Jubilee announced Friday they will move the annual celebration to Ontario after more than three decades in Victorville.

Held yearly on Father’s Day weekend, the event called Mojave Narrows Regional Park home through 2012. According to DVT Marketing, the event’s producing company since its inception, Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park in Ontario will now play host, beginning June 14. The new venue features two regularly stocked lakes and will allow the event to feature new activities while maintaining tradition, according to organizers.

Don Tucker, founder of the event, passed away in October after suffering a stroke. After years with the San Bernardino County Regional Parks Department, Tucker became CEO of DVT Marketing, a family-owned business that was created in 1983.

“He loved his days at Calico and getting Huck Finn off the ground,” said Tucker’s wife, Barbara after he passed. “His life was always a festival waiting to happen.”
