Events

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:

Somerset County 4-H Fair

August 12, 13, and 14, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at North Branch Park

Middle Earth hosts a hamburger stand every August at the Somerset County 4-H Fair, 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 on the third weekend in March. 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. Get more information by visiting our event page.

A Night At the Ballpark

Each summer, the Somerset Patriots host a "Middle Earth Night" at TD Bank Ballpark! Families can enjoy a great ballgame, fireworks afterwards, Middle Earth raffles, field activities for the youth, and fun for the whole family! Tickets ($10) purchased from Middle Earth helps support our youth programs.
