For over 100 years, generations of residents and visitors have come to the heart of downtown Morristown to enjoy the magic of the Christmas season. It began in 1913 with a small group of festive volunteers lighting a single star atop one tree on the Morristown Green. Since that time, this tradition has spread holiday cheer to countless families with its addition of a Santa House, holiday music and crafts, vintage-style oversized rocking horses, free rides around the Green on a miniature electric train and seasonal décor including thousands of dazzling lights and stunning lamppost wreaths throughout town.
Presented by the Morristown Partnership, the 2016 Christmas Festival at the Morristown Green is made possible thanks to Premier Sponsor, Morristown Medical Center as well as Title Sponsors, Hyatt Regency Morristown and The Star Ledger. Additional event sponsors include: 40 North Restaurants, Jersey Central Power & Light, KSA Capital Management, Pinot’s Palette, Power Home Remodeling Group, Renewal by Andersen, Rosewood and The Education Association of Morris (T.E.A.M.). We offer our sincere thanks to all our sponsors who support this time-honored Morristown tradition.
In 2016, thousands of Santa’s Goody Bags will be distributed to children thanks to generous donations from: Unique Belgique, the New York Jets and Century 21 Department Store.
The beauty of the downtown will once again entice people from near and far to shop, dine, visit and enjoy a wide variety of entertainment. Visit the website www.morristown-nj.org for full seasonal details.
