First Night® Morris County would not be possible without the help of more than 100 volunteers on New Year’s Eve. Our dedicated volunteers welcome attendees to the performances, check admission buttons, manage venues, perform various administrative tasks, work the command center, and staff street fairs. On the 364 days between events, First Night® Morris County is run by a volunteer Board of Trustees.
We are always looking for reliable volunteers, and those who volunteer on New Year’s Eve receive admission to First Night® at no charge.
