to the 81st Annual Warren County Farmers Fair, celebrating 21 years of the Traditional Arts Expo and featuring the 18th annual Hot Air Balloon Festival in NJ. The Warren County Farmers' Fair is a charming, country fair that features affordable entertainment for the entire family. Where else can you watch tractor pulls and mud bogs and enjoy a hot air balloon festival, all for one low price?
In 2001 the Warren County Farmers' Fair decided to add a Hot Air Balloon Festival. What better way to appreciate the beauty of Warren County than from the air? Mass Balloon launches are each evening around 6:30 pm, weather permitting.
This year the Fair celebrates 21 year for the Traditional Arts Expo at the Fair, celebrating the traditional arts. Take a stroll through the Traditional Arts building located at the Southend of the Fairgrounds, where you will discover an array of fabrics and tectures of traditions handed down from generation to generation, but also embraced by those new to quilting and other traditional arts.
Visit our Rules and Regs page, where you will find over 60 different contests to compete in, with multiple divisions and categories. There is plenty of opportunities to be more than just a spectator at the Fair. Compete for trophies, cash or just for bragging rights. If you can sing, sew or drive tractor, cook great BBQ Ribs, have a cool car or garden to boast about, there may be a contest for you. Be sure to check out the rules & regs to see if you are eligible to participate, as some are restricted to Warren County residents and some are open to anyone. Some contests require pre-registration. All the details can be found by clicking here.
