FLEMINGTON, NJ - Community art space Flemington DIY will hold a karaoke-themed fundraiser to support its operations and arts programming here.
The event will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Aug. 11 at Lone Eagle Brewing and will include prizes and special guest singers.
Flemington DIY opened its doors three years ago under a partnership with the Flemington Business Improvement District as “The 90 Main Project.” The organization has since become financially independent, and co-founder and former Flemington resident Jeff Hersch says the switch has opened the door for new opportunities.

“We are dedicated to keeping Flemington’s arts community thriving.” Hersch says. As a non-profit, “we have now been able to apply for grants to continue our current programming and add more.”
Celebrating three years of service on main street, Flemington DIY hosts a number of projects including frequent knitting group, tai chi classes, social theory reading group, tap dancing classes and more.
The venue serves as not only a meeting place, but a gallery and performance venue. It offers multi-purpose rooms and work space providing music recording and production, painting and art studios, rehearsal rooms and a free library.
Flemington DIY has partnered with a number of groups including Hunterdon Academy of the Arts, Hunterdon Central High School, Oldwick Community Players, Jersey Battered Women’s Service, Hunterdon County Anti-Racism Coalition and the Hunterdon Humane Animal Shelter.
All proceeds from the event will benefit Flemington DIY.
