Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) joined families, farmers, artisans, local businesses, and children at the 81st-annual Warren County Farmers’ Fair.

The Fair began informally in 1859 as a gathering of farmers, mechanics, and manufacturers, and was incorporated in 1937. Since then, the Fair has evolved and grown, including with the addition of the Hot Air Balloon Festival 17 years ago. This year’s Festival includes livestock exhibits, produce competitions, tractor pulls, horse shows, and baking and canning exhibits.

“Events like the annual Warren County Farmers’ Fair are what make our North Jersey community so special. I had a great time meeting with farmers and families, trying out the tractor, and sampling funnel cake and ice cream at the 81st-annual Warren Fair,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). “This Farmers’ Fair benefits our community by not only giving our families, farmers, and neighbors an opportunity to come together, but also by supporting our local businesses and youth organizations like 4-H and the Future Farmers of America (FFA). Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this year’s Fair possible.”
