Warren County Farmers' Fair
84 years of providing affordable family fun, including the 22nd annual Hot Air Balloon Festival, and Traditional Arts Expo

 

What started as a gathering of farmers, mechanics and manufacturers in 1859, evolved into the incorporation of the Warren County Farmers' Fair in 1937, and more recently mushroomed into an annual event that truly has something for everyone. Where else can you thrill to a hot air balloon ride, eat cotton candy on a carnival midway, watch traditional craftsmen at work, get down-and-dirty in a Mud Bog competition, and cheer your neighbor on in a tractor pull... all in the same place? Yes, the Farmers' Fair, featuring one of New Jerseys' popular Hot Air Balloon Festival is truly a family affair.


The Fair officially opens on Saturday, July 30, and runs through Saturday, August 6, 2022. The Warren County Fair remains one of the most affordable events around. Come on out the the country and enjoy an affordable day of family fun. Enjoy a Balloon Festival, Main Arena Events, and Free Concerts at the Warren County Farmers' Faiar. Come Out & Play!
