One Full Day, Two Spectacular Events

PHILLLIPSBURG, N.J. – Norwescap’s third annual NorwesFest on Saturday, June 24th will be, in baseball terminology, a day-night doubleheader.

Summer is just around the corner, and with that comes the return of NorwesFest at Ort Farms in Long Valley. Bigger and better than ever, this unique event offers something for everyone. Whether it’s a delightful day on the farm with your family, or an elegant night out under the stars with your spouse, partner or friends, you’ll find what you’re looking for at NorwesFest. The event is a major fundraiser for the Warren County based non-profit, Norwescap, which offers a variety of services to residents of the greater northwest New Jersey area. 

Family Fun Day – Families with children of all ages are welcome

June 24   |   11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Tickets: $10 per person (adult or child)   |   Children under 2 are free

Want to get out with the family to spend the day at one of New Jersey’s best farms? NorwesFest’s Family Fun Day offers an experience you and the kids won’t forget. The day will be packed with games and activities including pony rides, hay rides, carnival games, sports, face painting, treasure hunts, pick-your-own, musical entertainment by The Honky-Tonk Scoundrels and more. Snacks and soft drinks are included. Adults can enjoy wine and beer tastings. Lunch and treats will be available for purchase from Why Not Burgerz, RainBao and Waffle Cabin food trucks.

And then, geared towards adults…

Sunset Soirée – A special evening out
June 24   |   5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Benefit Tickets: $150 per seat   |   Table of 8: $1,200

Norwescap’s signature fundraiser is far from your typical gala. The Sunset Soirée offers everything you can imagine for a perfect summer night out – a gourmet farm-to-table dinner by Food Company Catering, local brews, fine wines, craft cocktails, lawn games and The SummerSwing Orchestra with vocalist Kevin J. Gray, a 17-piece jazz/swing band that will have you up and dancing – all in a gorgeous outdoor space with the sun setting over the mountains as the evening’s backdrop.

In support of a great cause, every dollar raised from NorwesFest will sustain Norwescap’s mission to create opportunities and change lives for more than 30,000 New Jerseyans each year. Your support of NorwesFest 2023 helps our neighbors with their most urgent needs (food and housing, for instance) and supports programs that help them work towards a future where they and their families can not only survive, but thrive.

Tickets for the Family Fun Day and the Sunset Soirée are available online at or at the gate. Plenty of free onsite parking.
