HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - The Rotary Club of Hillsborough’s annual Fair, Aug.15–20 at Hillsborough Promenade, 315 Route 206, will once again provide local business men and women with multiple opportunities to showcase their businesses before thousands of residents from Hillsborough and surrounding communities.

Over 15,000 attendees each year has made the Fair an unparalleled local venue to connect directly with customers.

“A wide array of local businesses and non-profit organizations ranging from karate schools to Yoga studios have taken advantage of this unique opportunity to meet current and prospective customers face-to-face,” said Ken Genco, a local Coldwell Banker realtor and the Rotary Club of Hillsborough member responsible for organizing the business venue at the Fair.

“Not only do these businesses have the opportunity to build their customer base with local residents, but they are also supporting an important fundraiser that returns all proceeds directly to local community service organizations,” he added.

Businesses have two, highly visible options to promote their company and services at the Fair. They may purchase a sign for $300 that is displayed at the Fair throughout the week, or they may purchase a tented space for $600 that allows them to display their business and talk to attendees who stop by their booth. 

“Meeting prospective customers at a highly regarded community event can do a great deal to boost a company’s image and customer base,” said Anthony Franchini, president of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough. “Community members deeply appreciate those businesses that demonstrate their community support through events like this.”

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough’s annual Fair.  The Fair has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars that are returned to the community through charitable contributions that fund local college scholarships, the Hillsborough food pantry, autism research, veteran’s organizations, and many others. 

The Rotary Fair features 21 amusement rides by Majestic Midway Amusements, games by Paladin Amusements, a DJ, a wide selection of food, a petting zoo and various displays by area vendors.  Featured rides include the Himalayan, Bumper Cars, Ring of Fire, Super Shot, Sizzler, Zipper, Carousel, Kite Flyer and many more. This year, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday will be pay-one-price wristband nights.

A spectacular fireworks display by Interstate Fireworks will again light up Hillsborough skies on Friday evening, August 18, at approximately 9:30 pm (rain date of Saturday August 19).  Petrock’s Bar and Grille is the major firework’s sponsor.

The Rotary Club of Hillsborough has over 40 active members from Hillsborough and surrounding communities.   Members include business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.  All funds raised by The Rotary Club of Hillsborough are used to support a wide variety of community service organizations and projects.

The Rotary Club of Hillsborough meets every Wednesday, at 6:15 pm, at The Landing Restaurant in Hillsborough.
