Santa’s Arrival Rescheduled for Friday, December 2nd at 5:00 pm

Morristown, NJ – November 29, 2022.

Due to inclement weather, the originally scheduled kick off of the Christmas Festival at the Morristown Green, including Santa’s Arrival, is now scheduled for Friday, December 2nd at 5:00 pm. Courtesy of the Morristown Partnership and their generous sponsors, the Morristown Green will once again be transformed into a winter wonderland. Family friendly activities are scheduled for Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month of December concluding on Sunday, December 18th. Look for a detailed activities and entertainment schedule on our website ( and/or via our QR code included on the event poster displayed throughout town.

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, a vintage-style oversized rocking horse, ice sculpture demonstrations and free rides around the Green on a miniature electric trail. All activities are free with the exception of a $15 fee for photos with Santa.

Santa’s Arrival will coincide, as in years past, with the ‘Countdown to the Lighting of the Green’ featuring seasonal décor, thousands of dazzling lights on the Green and stunning lamppost wreaths throughout downtown. Being that this event is entirely privately funded, we are grateful to participants in our Annual Appeal drive and encourage you to look for how you can help at Donate Now. The beauty of our downtown, we hope, will once again entice people from near and far to shop, dine, visit and enjoy a wide variety of entertainment.
