By popular demand “Shedfest,” our spring music festival will be back on Sunday, June 2nd from 2 to 7 p.m., featuring live music, food trucks, children’s activities and more, all in a beautiful country setting.

The festival is held at our home base, Fairview Farm Wildlife Preserve at 2121 Larger Cross Road, Bedminster – a 170-acre former dairy farm whose historic barns and meadows provide a scenic backdrop for a fun day in the country.

Three New Jersey bands will perform: Hub Hollow, Nick Dunbar and Sad Cowboy, and Hawks and Doves. Food trucks including Testo Pizza, Angry Archie’s (seafood sandwiches and sides), Marley’s Wings and Things, and Cream of the Crop (ice cream) will be on site throughout the event. Locally brewed beer and hard cider will be available for purchase from the Sunken Silo Brew Works of Whitehouse and the Burnt Mills Cidery of Bedminster.

Shedfest is a casual afternoon of great music, delicious food and drink, and outdoor fun at Fairview Farm. It’s a wonderful way to spend the day with friends and family while supporting RHA’s mission to protect land and clean water.

Adult tickets are $30 in advance and $50 on the day of the event; admission is free for children 12 and under. Guests should bring their own lawn chairs and blankets and leave their pets at home. Parking is free, and the event will be held rain or shine. To order tickets online, click here. For information on becoming a sponsor, contact Kate Arnao at

All proceeds will support Raritan Headwaters’ conservation mission to protect the upper Raritan River watershed region through science, education, land preservation and advocacy.
