Giralda Music and Arts Festival to be held in August

Delayed, But Not Forgotten. Annual Festival Returns.

MADISON BOROUGH, NJ (Morris County) – Good news for Morris Arts fans wondering whether its beloved Giralda Music & Arts Festival will return this year. The answer is YES!

However, the annual event held at Giralda Farms, located at Dodge Drive and Madison Avenue (Route 124), in Madison will take place on August 28, 2021 rather than early summer. The rain date is August 29, 2021. The gates open at 3:00 p.m. and the concert starts at 5:00 p.m.

Attendees will still be able to enjoy the beauty of a performance by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra while relaxing on the lush grounds of the Giralda Farms Corporate Park, (the former Dodge Estate), off Madison Avenue. As in the past, there also will be children’s activities, an art show & sale, food trucks and the picnic contest – with prizes awarded to the most inventive picnics.
