Morris Arts’ much-beloved Giralda Music & Arts Festival is June 26th, 2022 at Giralda Farms in Madison, NJ. Our inclement weather location is Mennen Arena in Morristown, NJ — same day and time. 

Enjoy the beauty of a performance by the New Jersey Symphony while relaxing on the lush grounds of the Giralda Farms Corporate Park, (the former Dodge Estate). There will be plenty to see and do, with children’s activities and an art show and sale. Morris Arts’ traditional creative picnic contest will return with prizes awarded to the most inventive picnics that day. This will mark Morris Arts’ 38th Giralda Music & Arts Festival – a much-treasured tradition in the area.

As quoted in Kevin Coughlin’s article for (, Morris Arts’ Executive Director, Tom Werder, stated: “I’m thrilled to be planning an event that can bring our community together again – to enjoy beautiful music in the great outdoors. It brings me hope that this event and many others that will start to reappear throughout New Jersey are a signal that we are returning to a sense of normalcy,” he said. To ensure everyone’s safety, CDC guidelines will be followed. 

Individuals needing special assistance or accommodation should contact Jenna Castano (973) 285-5115, x 12 or at least 14 days prior to the event to ensure appropriate arrangements.

All proceeds benefit the many programs and services provided to artists, arts organizations, schools, and the community by Morris Arts. So, invite that special someone, friends, family, neighbors, club members, or college chums to share a picnic and help support the important work of Morris Arts, which has been building community through the arts for 49 years.
