Outdoor Events

Live Music returns to the Back Deck! After launching Jazz on the Back Deck,  and Lot of Strings Music Festival in 2020, both return with full seasons of live music in our beautiful and safe setting!

Described by the New York Times as “Live Music Splendor in a Parking Lot”, the Back Deck has quickly become an epicenter for the best in live music in the Northeast. Bring your own chairs and refreshments and enjoy live entertainment atop the Morris Museum’s elevated parking deck. 8’x8′ blocks are available for up to two patrons for just $50 for all concerts. Stunning sunsets, social distance, and glorious live music combine for a series of unforgettable evenings.

Patrons are welcome to arrive as early as 6:30 PM to set up and enjoy the evening sun. In the event of inclement weather, outdoor performances will be held inside the Museum’s Bickford Theatre. Masks are required while in the Bickford Theatre.


On-line ticket sales end two hours prior to the start of a performance. Please call the Box Office at that time (973.971.3706). Note that all sales are final.

The Morris Museum thanks Will and Mary Leland for their leadership gift for the 2022 Lot of Strings season, and founding Lot of Strings donor, F. Gary Knapp for his continued generosity.
