Fourth Annual NorwesFest 2024 to Take Place June 22nd

(LONG VALLEY, NJ) -- Set in the bucolic fields of Ort Farms (25 Bartley Road) in Long Valley, NorwesFest returns for its fourth year on June 22, 2024 and it promises to be another annual event to remember. Whether it's the delightful day on the farm with family, or the elegant night under the stars with spouse, partner, or friends – there will be plenty to do at NorwesFest 2024.

Norwescap’s Chief Development Officer, Christine Coffey, noted, “Events like NorwesFest, help Norwescap support community members across our five service counties seek the help they need to reach a more stable future. The funds raised from NorwesFest 2024 enables us to bring positive change to thousands of families throughout New Jersey over the coming year and beyond, helping our communities -– one person at a time, one family at a time – to reach their goals.”

The festival has two distinct components, part one brims with activities for the kids…

Fourth Annual NorwesFest 2024 to Take Place June 22nd

June 22 from 11:00am – 2:30pm | Family Fun Day – Families with children of all ages are welcome! Admission: FREE for all to attend. Register in advance online. Children’s laughter and cows mooing is the soundtrack of Family Fun Day. Farm animals and hayrides, treasure hunts, gigantic OMG Bubbles, faux axe-throwing, classic games like volleyball and badminton, unlimited rides on the unique “cow train,” plus an array of arts and crafts under the big tent – it all adds up to a fantastic Family Fun Day! Admission is free for all to attend, and advance registration is encouraged.

And while kids with painted faces play unicorns and superheroes, adults can indulge in wine and beer tastings. Food trucks will sell an assortment of taste treats, and Norwescap will offer light refreshments as well.

Part two is geared towards adults…

June 22  from 5:30pm – 9:00pm | Sunset Soirée – A special evening out for grown-ups only. Tickets are available for purchase online. Come evening, the festivities shift to the enchanting Sunset Soirée. Step into Ort Farms’ rustic barn, transformed by the warm glow of twinkling lights, little bouquets of freshly picked wildflowers, and the sweet aroma of fresh-cut hay.

The Sunset Soirée, a ticketed event, unfolds with a gourmet farm-to-table dinner, complemented by local brews, fine wines, and craft cocktails. Guests are invited to dance the night away with a 17-piece jazz/swing band featuring vocalist Kevin Grey. For some friendly competition, try a lawn game, including cornhole and bocce ball. A solar-powered carousel adds a whimsical touch, a photo opportunity board helps capture the moment, and the vista across the valley is exquisite under the summer sky.
