The Hot Air Balloon Festival has been a crowd favorite at the Warren County Farmers' Fair since 2001. (We took a slight detour in 2020 because of Covid, where it was hosted at our long time sponsor, Warren County Community College.) But not only have the balloons returned to the Fair, but they have returned better than ever! Watch the skies above for colorful hot air balloons this year, or drop in to the Fair to take a tethered ride, or check out balloons like Fred G. Monster glowing on the balloon port! Always wanted to take a ride? Take it off your bucket list and schedule your full flight today!
There are a multitude of ways to get involved in the Fair. From handwork contests to Ag Olympics, there is something for every age, skill and style. Check out the results here and please check back as we continue to add our list of winners. Thanks to all that participated and helped make our Fair happen.
Each winter the Warren County Farmers' Fair Association begins planning for the County Fair for some summertime fun. Check back in the spring as we begin to update our schedule of events! For reference please download a sample of last years' events, for general planning.
This year will mark the 22nd annual Balloon Festival in Warren County, NJ. In 2020 the event moved to sponsor WCCC, in an exhibition of balloons and drones. That bold move not only kept the larger event, the Warren County Farmers' Fair, on the minds of many, but inspired two more Balloon Festivals in Warren County NJ!
