Hosted by Hardwick Township and Princeton-Blairstown Center, which since 1908 has graced Hardwick with its nearly 270 pristine acres of trails, waterfalls and wildlife. Its mission is to teach at-risk youth through adventure-based learning, the skills needed for self-empowerment and leadership. Upon registration, visitors to Hardwick Day 2019 will be welcomed to enjoy a fun-filled day in the woods and see for themselves this hidden treasure. Check out access www.princetonblairstown.org/events to learn more about PBC and see the full OKTOBERFEST MENU they devised for this event.

Chef Bob’s OCTOBERFEST food will be offered from 12:30 to 3:30pm, priced at $12 for All-You-Can-Eat wristbands, and $8 for Adult and $5 for Kid single serve plates. The township event is Alcohol-free.

This year’s event theme was chosen to highlight the need now to prevent wildfires. Heavily forested, Northwest New Jersey suffers increased tree loss due to invasive insects, storms and careless humans. Campers, homeowners and businesses are often unaware of the steps needed to prevent fires.
