The second annual Troutfest is just one of the ways Califon embodies the joys small-town life in this charming borough. Within its one-square-mile boundary are a general store, a mix of interesting retail options like a fly and tackle shop and equestrian consignment store, and restored Victorian and Colonial-style homes situated along quiet streets. Set on the banks of the South Branch of the Raritan River, Califon is located in the beautiful rolling hills of Hunterdon County where it borders Lebanon and Tewksbury Townships.
