eventsMiddle Earth hosts a variety of events throughout the year that raise funds, encourage volunteerism, celebrate our programs or increase awareness for the agency. We hope you'll consider joining us - you can have fun and support your community at the same time! Our events are:

Reception at the Winemakers of Somerset

Tuesday, June 5, 2018 from 6 to 9 p.m.

You are invited to attend a Reception at the Winemakers of Somerset at 12 Church Street in Bound Brook. Guestswill enjoy guided tours of an Italian-style working winery and wonderful refreshments, including wine, beer and hors d'oeuvres. Additionally, the event will feature a silent auction, raffles, a giving tree, and a presentation by the Middle Earth youth. This event will be a great opportunity to network with other local business owners and community leaders. Get more information or purchase tickets.

Somerset County 4-H Fair

August 8-10, 2018

Every August, Middle Earth hosts a hamburger stand at the Somerset County 4-H Fair at North Branch Park, encouraging volunteerism among our youth and raising funds for our agency. You can support us by purchasing food from our tent or volunteering to help with the food preparation!

"Run from Winter" 10K Race

Middle Earth hosts a 10K run through Duke Island Park every Spring. The event raises funds for Middle Earth and fills a void in the local area for races that are longer than 5K but not a half marathon. Prizes for top winners and t-shirts for all racers are distributed. Visit our race page for more information or to register.

A Night At the Ballpark

Each summer, the Somerset Patriots host "Middle Earth Night" at TD Bank Ballpark! Families can enjoy a great ballgame, Middle Earth raffles, field activities for the youth, and fun for the whole family! And, there is a FIREWORKS show after the game! Tickets ($10) purchased from Middle Earth helps support our youth programs. You can learn more about the Somerset Patriots on their website.
