Baseball has traditionally played a role in building communities and bringing generations together. The All-New Skylands Stadium is located in the heart of rural Sussex County. The entire stadium and surrounding facilities have been recently renovated, offering exciting sporting events, tradeshows, and fun family entertainment. There are indoor and outdoor spaces for corporate and community functions. Krave Café and Caterers of Newton, one of Jersey’s best, handles all of the catering needs year round. Their new 80-seat restaurant located at the Stadium – the wheelHouse Craft Kitchen & Bar – is also open year round. The stadium is fully licensed to serve alcohol in the event spaces and the three concession areas.
The Sussex County Miners are proud members of the Canadian American Association of Professional Baseball (Can-Am League), one of the historic names in minor league baseball. Opening Day at Skylands Stadium is May 20, 2016 and there is plenty of excitement planned throughout the summer, including fireworks, theme nights, special promotions, and great daily specials. This season, the Miners host two exciting international series: one against the Shikoku Island All-Stars from Japan and the other against one of the world’s most prominent teams—the Cuban National Team. Sussex County plays the balance of their 100-game schedule against local rivals—the Rockland Boulders and New Jersey Jackals—as well as a trio of Canadian teams, including the Can-Am League champion Trois-Rivières Aigles.
In addition to the ball field there is a 5,000 square foot open-air pavilion overlooking first base, as well as a 17,000 square foot indoor event center. These spaces host annual events including a craft-beer fest, spring and fall boat show & outdoor sportsmen’s expo, an all-American thrill show, a spectacular Christmas light show, and the wildly anticipated “Frozen In Ice” featuring amazing displays of ice carvings and professional carving competitions.
