EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. – For nearly 80 years, it has been an annual Middlesex County late-summer rite of passage. Each year, the Middlesex County Fair receives about 85,000 visitors who learn about the county’s rich agricultural heritage, sample flavorful food, fly through the August air on carnival rides, and say hello to family, friends and neighbors – new and old.


Over the course of the one week fair, Middlesex County Republican Candidate for Sheriff Peter Pisar, and Middlesex County Republican Freeholder candidates Joe Scillieri and Katie Calabrese, spent a good deal of time at the fairgrounds. The candidates introduced themselves to the public, listened to their concerns, and discussed various ways to improve towns, local government and the lives of those who live and work in Middlesex County.
