Frenchtown’s 150th Birthday Celebration Set for September 30th


Come one. Come all to Frenchtown’s 150th Birthday Celebration scheduled for Saturday, September 30th from 3pm-9pm at the Old Frenchtown Field (across from the elementary school on Harrison) with evening events moving downtown. As part of the celebration attendees can enjoy music, games, food, a beer garden and evening fireworks.

“Thanks to the efforts of many volunteers and the generosity of our local merchants including our title sponsor, the Flemington Car & Truck Country Family of Brands, located on Routes 202 and 31 in Flemington, we are able to provide this Birthday Celebration,” said Frenchtown Borough Council President Michele Liebtag, one of the key organizers. “The Borough of Frenchtown has a very rich history and is a cultural destination for many,” she continued. “It’s only right that we celebrate this milestone year.”

“We’re excited to bring this event to the community,” said Frenchtown Mayor Brad Myhre. “We invite all local residents and neighboring communities to come see all we have to offer including live music,  a Memory Tent, games for the kids, a taste of the foods of Frenchtown, a Beer Garden provided by Lone Eagle and River Horse Brewing Companies … and of course an 8:30 pm Fireworks Display. We thank community volunteers and sponsors who have helped to make this a party to remember.”
