The perfect way to start the summer? Morris Arts’ 33rd  annual Giralda Music & Arts Festival featuring The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, Sunday, June 26, 2016, at Giralda Farms, Dodge Drive/Madison Ave. (Rt. 124) in Madison.


At Giralda, you can hear the state’s top orchestra, relax on the beautiful lawns of former Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge estate, see (and purchase) original artworks, enjoy family/children’s arts activities, indulge your ice cream cravings at the fully stocked antique ice cream truck or just picnic with friends and family.

This year, The NJSO goes from the concert hall to the movie theater to the Giralda Music and Arts Festival! Listen to musical selections from Ghostbusters, Star Wars, The Godfather: Part III, The Wizard of Oz, Beauty and the Beast, Moulin Rouge, Batman and many more. Bring the picnics and the kids and have a blockbuster of a good time!

Best of all, the weather is of no concern! By special arrangement with the Morris County Park Commission, our rainsite at the Mennen Arena, 161 East Hanover Ave., Morristown will host the same, full experience of the Giralda Music & Arts Festival as you would have outdoors – with the art show and sale, family arts activities, picnics (and prizes) and, of course, the concert!
