The 23nd Annual Tewksbury Harvest Festival will be held Saturday, September 25, 2021 (rain date 9/26) from 12:00 to 5:00 pm at the beautiful Christie Hoffman Farm Park in Tewksbury , N.J. Admission is $20 per car and benefits two local non-profits: the Tewksbury First Aid & Rescue Squad and the Tewksbury Library. The Festival, which attracts 1,500-2000 participants every year, draws crowds from Tewksbury and surrounding communities. This family-friendly festival in bucolic Hunterdon County includes sweet and savory food trucks (new for 2021!), unique arts and craft vendors, and music by the Bonnie Boland Band. Free activities include pumpkin and face painting, a classic car show, games, a petting zoo, pony rides, hayrides, fire trucks, a tethered hot air balloon (weather permitting), and more. Free popcorn and cotton candy will be provided by area Scout troops. A silent auction will include items from area businesses, craftspeople, and service providers. Previous silent auction items have included golf at Baltusrol and Liberty National Golf Clubs, a MOMA tour with transportation, Metropolitan Seafood lobster dinners, NY Giants tickets, Somerset Patriots box seats, and dinners at the Tewksbury Inn. For a continually evolving and updated listing of food trucks, craft vendors, and silent auction items up for grabs, or for more information, visit www.tewksburyharvestfest.com or facebook.com/tewksburyharvestfestival.

You exit your car and are directed to a rose-covered archway leading to a rickety bridge, which bounces and jangles as you cross the creek. On your way, you catch glimpses of a barn peeking through the bushes. Soon, you're grabbing a spot on the lawn in the shade, surrounded by neighborly music-lovers, waiting for the show to start...
