Warren County Farmers’ Fair


Warren County Farmers' Fair and Hot Air Balloon Festival, Jersey BitesThis sponsored article is brought to you by the Warren County Farmers’ Fair.

The 77th Annual Warren County Farmers’ Fair featuring the Hot Air Balloon Festival officially kicks off this Saturday, July 26, and runs through Saturday, August 2.

Every day, the fair will host numerous events, rides, contests, and more including a mass hot air balloon launch, presented by JCP&L and powered by AmeriGas, which takes place every night at 6:30 p.m. And what’s any great fair without tons of great food?

Many of the food stands at the fair are handled by nonprofit organizations including the NJ State Grange, which run the booths. “The fair proves as an annual fundraiser for these organizations,” said Giulia Iannitelli, marketing director and one of the coordinators of the event. “They keep their prices reasonable and with the funds they raise, they give back to the community, so it’s a win-win.”

The fair features events like the Mr. and Ms. Warren County Competition, a corn-eating contest made possible by the Knowlton Lions Club. The Lions Club also runs a food stand featuring its roasted corn, funnel cakes and fresh squeezed lemonade.

The Warren Hills Wrestling Club runs an invitational wrestling tournament on the closing day of the fair and also organizes a popular food stand that opens early for breakfast.

For children, various eating competitions will take place daily at the Kids’ Corral, from pie- to watermelon- to saltine-eating contests.

Admission is $7 for adults, and $4 for children ages 5 to 12. Kids 4 and under get in for free, and parking is free.
