New in 2017

The Home Arts Division is pleased to announce a new event The Charity Cake Challenge for the 2017 fair. This event will benefit a local food pantry. There are two ways for you to participate. 1. Enter a decorated cake. 2. Vote for the winner by making a monetary donation.

All decorated cakes brought to the fairgrounds 655 Cranbury Rd. East Brunswick, NJ 08816 on entry day Sunday Aug. 6th between noon and 5 p.m. will automatically be entered into the contest.

Each cake will be placed on display in the Home Arts building for the entire fair.

There will be a numbered container corresponding to a cake with the same number. You vote for the winning cake by placing your donation in the container of the cake you wish to win. As we wish everyone to be able to participate, you may place any amount of money in the container. One cent will equal one vote. All proceeds will be donated to a local food pantry at the end of the fair. We hope you will be as generous as possible.

The contest will be open from Monday Aug. 7th at 5 p.m. until Sat. Aug. 12th at 10 p.m. Winner will be announced at 1 p.m. on Sunday Aug. 13th.

The winning cake will receive a special ribbon.
