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, free rides around the Green on a miniature electric trail. All activities are free with the exception of a $10 fee for photos with Santa.
Santa’s Arrival, as well as the month-long Christmas Festival at the Morristown Green, are made possible thanks to returning sponsors Atlantic
Health System/Morristown Medical Center, Hyatt Regency Morristown, The Star Ledger/NJ.com, 40 North Restaurants, Lakeland Bank and The Education Association of Morris (T.E.A.M.) New sponsors this year include SJP Properties, Summit Health and Columbia Bank. We offer our sincere thanks to all our sponsors who support this time-honored Morristown tradition.
