For more than twenty years, First Night Morris County has brought world-class entertainment to Morristown on New Year’s Eve. While some First Nights have either disappeared or become shadows of their former glory, First Night Morris County has found a way to keep the energy and excitement going and today, proudly holds the title of New Jersey’s largest First Night® celebration.
This New Year’s Eve, First Night Morris will feature over 300 artists and 80 performances in 24 venues, all within walking distance of the historic Morristown Green. It is a true celebration of arts and culture that can be enjoyed by people of all ages in a family-friendly, alcohol-free environment. Two fireworks displays – at 9:15 and midnight –light up the night for thousands of attendees. There is even free shuttle service all evening.
A non-profit 501 (c)3 organization, First Night Morris County offers access to world-class performances for an affordable $20 early-bird ticket price; children 4 and under are admitted free!
New this year! An additional two hours of children’s programs will begin at 5 PM and continue throughout the evening until 10 PM. A First Night MC will keep the music, fun, and games going on the Green from 7:00 to midnight. Information kiosks, a Community Expo, Future Artist Development initiative, Comfort ticketing options and Horse & Carriage Excursions will add to what is sure to be a fresh and exciting First Night 2014 experience.
