As a 501c(3) Non-Profit First Night® Morris County would not be possible without the help of more than 150 volunteers who donate their time and efforts throughout the Year and on New Year’s Eve. Our dedicated volunteers  participate in year round committees and/or on New Year’s Eve only by 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 and 6 Committees.

We are always looking for reliable volunteers, and those who volunteer Throughout the Year and/or on New Year’s Eve receive admission to First Night® at no charge.
