Middle 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:
"Run from Winter" 10K Race
Sunday, April 23, 2017
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. Get more information by visiting our event page.
A Night At the Ballpark
Every July, 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.
Somerset County 4-H Fair
Every August, visit Middle Earth's 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!
Every Fall, you can join us for a wonderful evening with beer, wine, and heavy hors d'oeuvres; silent auction; fun activities; and some presentations from the Middle Earth youth.
