Hunterdon Fall Fest – October 13

 

Hunterdon Fall Fest is a family friendly fall festival with an emphasis on cycling. In addition to Food Vendors, Beer Garden, Live Music, Mobile Sauna, Pumpkin Carving, etc.... Hunterdon Fall Fest also plays host to a charity road ride (Ride Strong Roubaix) where road riders can choose a 20, 40 or 60 mile ride through Kindwood and Delaware Townships. Donations to 3 great nonprofits is also an option, but not mandatory. Riders can choose to ride for and donate to The Cancer Support Community, The American College of Rheumatology or The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.   The ride is fully supported with support vehicles, pre-ride bike maintenance and rest stops. The ride will terminate at Horseshoe Bend Park were participants are encouraged to enjoy the offerings of the Hunterdon Fall Fest. Hunterdon Fall Fest will also play host HippoCross Cyclocross race. HippoCross is the largest Cyclocross race in New Jersey and a blast to watch with friends! Finally, a children's bicycle riding course and fun zone will be on site as well, and we hope the entire family comes out to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather (fingers crossed) at Hunterdon Fall Fest.
