Signature Events at Morven
FESTIVAL OF TREES
November 21, 2018 - January 6, 2019
Morven’s annual Festival of Trees has become a must-see Princeton holiday tradition. Visitors enjoy the museum’s elegant galleries, hallways, and porches artfully decorated for the holidays by local businesses, garden clubs, and non-profit organizations.
JULY 4TH JUBILEE
Every year on July 4th, 12:00–3:00 p.m.
Each year, in honor of Independence Day, Morven hosts a FREE event to celebrate our American heritage at the home-turned-museum of Richard Stockton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
MORVEN IN MAY
May 3-5, 2019
One of New Jersey’s most anticipated spring rituals, Morven is May is our annual weekend event attracting nearly 2,500 Princeton-area residents, as well as a state-wide audience and many visitors from eastern Pennsylvania. Morven in May begins with a Friday night ticketed preview party, followed by a two-day public sale. This year Morven in May will embrace a garden-focused theme and pay homage to our refurbished historic gardens. Along with the two-day vendor sale, Morven presents an heirloom plant sale, now in its 14th year.
STORYTIME AT MORVEN
$10 per family; Free with Family membership (unless otherwise noted).
Ages 3 to 6
Join us on select Thursdays for Morven’s Storytimes featuring themes ranging from art, gardens, history, in the Mansion, our Stockton Center, or in the Gardens. Picture books are read by our Curator of Education and Public Programs Debra Lampert-Rudman or one of Morven’s docents!
