I recently went to the Middlesex County Fair in East Brunswick with my husband and daughter and wanted to share some insights with you! I hope you’re able to get over there this weekend with your families – such a great way to support local vendors, businesses and our county!

What you can expect at the County Fair

A line for parking

I know this isn’t the most positive way to start out the list but I feel like if you mentally prepare to wait to park, it won’t be so bad – added bonus if it’s quick!

We went on a weeknight and it wasn’t bad at all, but requires some patience.

To pay with cash

Make sure to stop at an ATM before heading over there. It is a cash only entrance and I’m sure your kids are going to want food and rides and…all the things. 

Animals

There are animals of all sizes to check out! Ride a pony, see a baby pig, feed a goat – smell all of the smells while you’re at it (lol)

My daughter LOVED riding on the pony – first timer! She was afraid to the other times we have attempted it and they were so nice letting her feel it out first – shout out to All American Ponies!

Food

Mmmmm there were a lot of good choices! (if you’re not worried about calories of course) I highly recommend the chicken quesadillas from Gourmet Catering and BBQ – it was so full of chicken, onions, peppers, and cheese – def worth it. #notsponsored

Rides

The usual carnival favorites!

There are also fireworks happening on Sunday!

Overall, we stayed a couple of hours and got to entertain our daughter, have a night out together and have some dinner. They set it up with a good flow of traffic and it seemed under control. If you are able to get there, have a great time!!!
