First Night Morris 2014 Survival Guide

Check out who is performing where and when, download maps and more.

A pair of fireworks shows, 200 artists and 80 cultural packed into 25 separate venues all add up to the First Night Morris event in Morristown.

The county's alcohol-free celebration of arts is ringing in the New Year, and Morris Arts is serving as artistic programmer for the 22nd time.

Nearly two-thirds of the program features new artists and artists returning after several years, many of whom have performed at major venues such as the White House, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and Madison Square Garden; have won recognition including Grammy awards and MacArthur “genius” grants; and have worked on television or films and with worldwide performing arts.

The variety of performances can be staggering. Fortunately, there is not only a complete schedule of performances to download and print out, but a full map of the venues as well.

The music will encompass a variety of genres.

USA Folk Music:
Word Culture Expo:

This year’s new early session for younger children also features StoryFaces, where stories come to life through face painting, and Art 4 Kids, with fine artist Christine Wagner and Imagination LEGO! (building with LEGOS). The Children’s Fun Festival promises its lively mix of magic, juggling, costumed characters, mask making, balloon animals and face painting.
