Mark your calendars for June 2023, and stay tuned!
Daytime Family Fun Day | Evening Sunset Soiree
Ort Farms | 25 Bartley Road, Long Valley, NJ
NorwesFest 2022 was a blast! On Saturday, June 25 at Ort Farms, we enjoyed a truly fantastic day – and evening – at our second annual NorwesFest.
We are so grateful to everyone who attended, brought your friends along, donated, sponsored, bought raffle tickets, shared the news on social media, or took part in any way. Not only did you fill the day with energy and fun, but you helped us reach a new fundraising high – more than $60,000 raised to support our neighbors as they work to overcome obstacles and achieve their dreams!
As we look through these photos, we can’t stop smiling, and hope the same for you. Browse through our Flickr album here for high-quality images ready to be downloaded to preserve those memories; or scroll through the Facebook album and tag yourself – or friends and family – when you spot your picture. Thanks to Cathy Miller for the gorgeous photos!
We must again thank our generous event sponsors: ShopRite; Mutual of America; NJM Insurance; Valley National Bank; PNC Bank; and Provident Bank for not only supporting the event, but sending an INCREDIBLE, energetic group of volunteers; and all our other sponsors who made the event possible. Because of their generous support, 100% of the funds raised through ticket sales, raffle and donations go straight to our mission. Now that is something we can all feel great about!
Thank you again to all who supported NorwesFest 2022. We’ll see you at Ort Farms next June!

The Family Fun portion of NorwesFest happened from 11 am to 3 pm with a ticket price of only $10 per person. Children under 2 were admitted free. This day offered a great way to get out with the family to spend the day at one of New Jersey’s best farms. NorwesFest’s Family Fun Day offered an experience you can’t forget – packed with games and activities, including pony rides, hay rides, carnival games, sports, face painting, treasure hunts, pick-your-own, snacks and soft drinks, wine and beer tastings for the adults, and more – all included with the $10 ticket! Additional lunch and treats were available for purchase on site from local food truck: Homer’s Girls.
The evening, from 5:30 to 9:00 pm, of NorwesFest offered an elegant Sunset Soiree with an all-inclusive ticket for only $150 per person, age 21 and up. This event was a fabulous date night or celebratory evening out with friends. The Sunset Soiree had everything that an opulent summer party could include – a gourmet farm-to-table spread from appetizers to entrée to desserts; fine wines, craft brews, and cocktails from local distilleries; and live music by the SummerSwing Orchestra, a 17-piece band with singer Kevin Grey, that had us all up and dancing – or at least tapping our toes – in nature’s gorgeous outdoor space with the sun setting over the mountains as our evening’s backdrop.
