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.
Proceeds from this popular event support RHA’s mission to protect the water in our rivers, our streams and our homes through environmental education, community well testing, stream monitoring and cleanup, research, and open space preservation. The watershed region we protect, located in Hunterdon, Morris and Somerset Counties provides clean water for over 1.8 million people in New Jersey and is an area of extraordinary natural beauty, wildlife habitat, and notable historic and cultural resources.
Our Old Fashioned Country Fair attracts thousands of guests each year from the Somerset Hills region and beyond. Some of the highlights of this year’s Fair include:
- Country Music
- Wagon rides drawn by Clydesdale horses;
- Children’s area featuring pumpkin painting, clean river race game and scarecrow dressing;
- Pumpkin Sling; and
- Local, seasonal food cooked fresh by Bex Eatery.
This is a fundraising event for RHA and a great opportunity for you to help!
