Fall brings brightly colored leaves, cooler temperatures and Raritan Headwaters’ annual Old Fashioned Country Fair! The event, sponsored by the organization’s Board of Trustees, has heralded the start of autumn since 1980.
Join us for a day filled with fun for the whole family. Wagon rides pulled by Clydesdales, a field maze, sheep herding demonstrations, the Essex Fox Hounds, El-Rich Farm alpacas and music by the Jugtown Mountain String Band are just some of what you’ll see and hear at the Fair this year.
In addition to old favorites like the corn pool, face painting and “hammer & nails,” the children’s area will include a Mother Earth loom, a wishing tree and fun making fairy houses, dressing scarecrows and painting pumpkins! This year’s education area will include plenty of fun, hands-on activity stations for kids of all ages, and our Science and Education Center will be open for children’s book readings in the Exploration Room and environmental “shorts” shown throughout the Fair in our Community Meeting Room.
Do some early holiday shopping with unique artisans, like Bob Morris’ fine paper creations from Germany (advent calendars and shadow box cards, along with his colorful paper lanterns and felt party hats).
Pick up some locally grown produce from Dogwood Farms, and stop by for a visit with our favorite bee keeper, the Bee Wrangler, for local honey. The Pottersville Fire Company will be back grilling lunch, and the Daughters of the British Empire will be selling yummy baked goods. Also this year, we welcome Tony’s Travelling Trattoria Food Truck and Oh Wow Cow ice cream.
We hope to see you there!
