best ticket in town?

There’s a lot going on in Montclair and if you’ve just arrived it may be difficult to keep up.

Got a hankerin’ for some fresh produce? You’re in luck. The Montclair Farmers' Market is open Saturdays,  June through November, at the Walnut St. Station.

Montclair celebrates the 4th of July with fireworks and a parade featuring marching bands, local dance troupes, antique autos, and the must-see synchronized lawn mower maneuvers from the Recreation & Cultural Affairs guys.

For New Year’s Eve, our Town pulls out all the stops. First Night brings dancing, music and performance art of all kinds — skateboarding to ice sculpture — to the venues on Bloomfield Avenue,  South Fullerton and Church Streets.

Winter months move activities indoors. Spellers study their esoteric word lists in preparation for the Montclair Spelling Bee. And proud pooches parade around Clary Anderson Arena hoping for a chance to win Best in Show. Proceeds from both events benefit the Montclair Public Schools.

Then, it’s downtown again, in late Spring for Downtown Saturday Night. Revelers rock and roll under the big top to live bands playing  50s and 60s music.

May in Montclair” – a month-long celebration of Spring in all its finery! Check out some of the local flora at the Presby Iris Gardens, where you can see an iris with a pedigree dating back to the 1600’s. Play miniature golf amidst exotic sculptures on the lawn of the Montclair Art Museum.

Visit the open-air bazaar, also known as the Side Walk Sale, on the 2nd Saturday in September.  Sample treats from the local restaurants while browsing through racks of merchandise — prices slashed for just one day.

Montclair is happenin’ all year round.
