EVENTS FUNDRAISERS VOLUNTEER PRESS PHOTOS CONTACT US

2014 was a wonderful year celebrating our 300TH BIRTHDAY. Thank you so much for the overwhelming participation in the many events that took place. We had such a huge success in 2014 we decided to continue our efforts to bring these programs to you for as long as we can.

In 2015 our Hunterdon History and Heritage theme was HUNTERDON'S AGRICULTURAL HERITAGE. We have pretty much wrapped up most of our 2015 events and are now planning 2016's festivities. Municipalities and other special partners have been invited to add their heritage events to our calendar.

2016 we Celebrate Hunterdon's Heritage in 2016 - THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR IN HUNTERDON.

A huge thank you to our incredible sponsors, volunteers and committee members for all of your support.

If you have any questions please email 300info@co.hunterdon.nj.us or call us at 908-788-2030.
