 The free pyrotechnics display is designed and executed by Interstate Fireworks and sponsored by Kelly Compher at Keller Williams Cornerstone.

“Our free fireworks show rivals the length and complexity of the township’s Independence Day display,” said Abed Medawar, president of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough.

Fairgoers need only look up to have the best viewing position to enjoy the free show, which is expected to begin around 9:45 p.m.   

The fair is held at the township field adjacent to the Lowes Hillsborough Promenade, 315 Route 206. Admission is free.

The six-day carnival attracts approximately 15,000 people each year, and is one of the Township’s largest and most popular annual community events. Fair proceeds go directly to support a variety of Hillsborough community organizations and projects.  

The Rotary Fair features 21 amusement rides by Majestic Midway Amusements, games by Paladin Amusements, a DJ, a wide selection of food, various displays by area vendors and a petting zoo.

Featured rides include the Himalayan, Bumper Cars, Ring of Fire, Super Shot, Sizzler, Zipper, Carousel, Kite Flyer and many more.

Admission is free. The fiar is open 6-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2-7 p.m. Sunday. 

The Hillsborough Rotary Club 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.

The Hillsborough Rotary serves the Hillsborough community.  All funds raised at the Rotary Fair and other Rotary events throughout the year are donated back to community projects. The Hillsborough Rotary Club meets every Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Pheasants Landing Restaurant at 311 Amwell Road in Hillsborough.
