First Night Morris

First Night Morris 2019

Morristown, are you ready for the biggest night of the year? On December 31st, nearly 10,000 will gather for First Night Morris 2019!

First Night Morris, now in its 27th year, is the biggest and brightest New Year’s Eve celebration in New Jersey, providing a magnificent family-friendly, alcohol-free and substance-free celebration in 22 venues throughout the heart of Morristown. Their stellar program features 70 events: dance, theatre, music (rock, jazz, blues, classical, etc.), visual arts, world cultures, children’s programs and so much more.

Performers this year include David Darwin of America’s Got Talent, the Baroque Orchestra of New Jersey, Comedienne Erin Jackson, and many others. Children entertainment includes Fun with Legos®, Rizzo’s Reptile/Wildlife Discovery, clowns, faceprinting, magicians, and other fun entertainers!

Your First Night Morris County admission button gives you access to innovative, diverse and high quality performances ideal for participants of all ages. The venues are within close walking distance of one another and the historic Morristown Green. (Lucky for #HipNJ, the NYE weather will be quite balmy for this time of year, so walking around will be comfortable!) The venues are also accessible via free shuttles which run all evening. Dazzling fireworks shows happen at 9:15pm and midnight. For one affordable price, you and your friends and family will enjoy unlimited access to all of our spectacular performances (subject to venue capacities).

Where to go on NYE!

Can you believe its almost 2019?! I can’t either! As the year comes to an end, everyone is jotting down their 2019 goals, New Year’s resolutions, and trying to find the best way to bring the new year in. 

While some like to stay home and watch the ball drop with family, others like to go out and party with friends. However do it, just be sure to have fun. Making it to see another year is always something to celebrate! 

For those who do want to party, but don’t know where to go, here’s a treat for you!

NYE at Waterside

Gather a group of friends, family or your significant other and bring in 2019 at Waterside Restaurant & Lounge (On the Hudson). Celebrate New Years Eve with style, class and a beautiful view of the NYC Skyline! 

The Midnight Ball: Black Tie Affair

This event will take place at the BRAND NEW Atelier Ballroom in Jersey City. If you want to bring in the New Year in an elegant atmosphere, this is the place for you. There will be VIP seating and private rooms available. 

New Year’s Eve at Borgata

If you’re looking for a little getaway to bring the new year in, stay at the Borgata in Atlantic City! They’ll have exclusive casino deals, celebrity chefs and an amazing nightlife line-up! End the year with a bang at Borgata!

Whatever you choose to do, we hope you have fun and stay safe!

Happy New Year from Hip New Jersey!
