The Meadowlands State Fair will be taking place for its 30th year close by to Hoboken! Our residents at The Rivington can take a short 20 minute drive to enjoy a day—or days of fun! The fair will begin on June 23rd and continue through the beginning of July. As there are many traditions of this annual event, you can expect them again this year as well as some new features and special 30th year celebration activities!
The fair takes place at the meadowlands in East Rutherford. This year one of the big food attractions is the “Eat Our Bacon” stand. As the title explains everything will feature bacon, most items wrapped in the mouth watery food favorite. They will offer bacon wrapped chicken skewers, bacon wrapped hotdogs and even meatballs wrapped up in bacon! Of course bacon will not be the only yummy treat you can find. Fair favorites such as cotton candy, fried Oreos and carnival cake will be served from several participating vendors as well as much more!
In addition to food there will be plenty of entertainment throughout the time the fair is in session. Acts will vary through the run of the fair, but some scheduled acts include hypnotists, magicians, high dive shows, live music from different artists, a petting zoo and other fun entertainment. For a full schedule you can take a look at the entertainment section of the event website. There will also be plenty of rides for some exhilarating fun! Ferris wheels, bumper cars, haunted houses and many more rides for both adults and kids will be set up on the fair grounds.
