The 7th Annual Corn, Tomato, and Beer Festival

August 10 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A Farm-to-Festival Celebration of Local Jersey Tomatoes, Sweet Corn, and Craft Beer! This sweet summer event brings local farmers, boutique restaurants, food trucks, 10 craft breweries, live bands, artisans, and kids’ activities together to celebrate everything great about Central NJ in the summertime!

On Saturday, August 10th the summer harvest meets the artisan district at Flemington’s Stangl Road, where the 7th Annual Corn, Tomato, and Beer Festival celebrates sweet Jersey tomatoes, heirloom corn, local craft beer, live music, and family activities from noon to 8 p.m.

Attended by thousands, the event offers farm-to-table cuisine and a homage to NJ’s beloved corn and tomato dishes as prepared by local restaurants and farmers, plus a beer garden featuring 10 local New Jersey craft breweries.
“Lone Eagle Brewing is excited to build on past event successes by bringing even more NJ craft brewers to this year’s festival. We love supporting our local NJ craft brewers and serving beer made from local ingredients,” said Bob King, owner of Lone Eagle Brewing and a former member of the Flemington Community Partnership Board (FCP).

“We are so fortunate to live in the heartland of Jersey’s famous corn and tomato farms, with a historic downtown Main Street and a new Arts and Cultural District on Stangl, and great community-oriented future growth – it is the best of both worlds,” said Jeremy Long, Flemington Borough Council President.

Flemington restaurants celebrate the local harvest and gear up for the festival by featuring creative corn and tomato dishes all summer. At the festival, restaurants and food stands will offer variations on dishes featuring corn and tomatoes and the usual favorites. Featured items include roasted corn, gazpacho, wood-fired pizza, corn salad, homemade empanadas, Mexican street corn, pulled pork, quesadillas, heirloom tomato salad, fresh salsas, and gourmet kettle corn.

Festival-goers can complement these choices with refreshing beer, kombucha, fruit smoothies, fresh lemon and limeade, and frozen cheesecake on a stick. If you bring a chair or a blanket, there is enough space to find a shady relaxing spot.

Festival admission and parking are free. Take Route 12 to the parking lot entrance near the former Liberty Village and enter Stangl Road on foot from the south end by the former Polo Outlet and Lone Eagle Brewing. The rain date for the event is Sunday, August 11th
