Get a Jump Start on the 4th: Music and Fireworks at Moorland

By Brianne Harrison

Warmer weather brings with it a deluge of outdoor concerts, picnics, and festivals. If you’re looking for all three rolled into one, you’re in luck: Music at Moorland is coming up on June 25.

This annual event, held at Moorland Farms in Far Hills, features a concert by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, followed by a spectacular fireworks show at nightfall. Gates open at 5:30, so feel free to bring a picnic to enjoy on the lawn (barbequing, however, is not permitted). If you’re not in the mood to tote dinner, Benefactor tickets ($300) get you premium seats, an orchestra parking pass, and a country dinner buffet. A concession stand will also be available at the event.

Music at Moorland benefits the Somerset Medical Center in Somerville. Tickets are $25 (general admission), $100 (member seating), and $300 (benefactor seating). A portion of each adult ticket is deductible as a charitable contribution to Somerset Medical Center Foundation. Children under 14 are free.
