Star Spangled South Orange

July 1

6:00pm - 10:00pm

Food, games, art, music, movies — Star Spangled South Orange has something for everyone!

It’s time for something new under the stars on Flood’s Hill, and the Meadowland Park Conservancy, along with South Orange Village, is bringing a star spangled extravaganza to town for every family to enjoy.

Bring your blankets and lawn chairs to cheer on the contestants in the return of the Town Hall Deli Sloppy Joe Eating Contest…listen to the beautiful sounds of the South Orange Symphony Orchestra performing Americana favorites…and watch as the iconic film “1776” tells the story of our nation’s founding on the big screen.

Plus food trucks, kids’ games from the South Mountain Y, a bead and bracelet bar from The Neon Tea Party, an SEFD fire truck and SORS ambulance to explore, and a sparkler finale for everyone to light up the sky.  It’s all free and it’s all for you!

If you’d like to be considered for the Town Hall Deli Sloppy Joe Eating Contest, get in touch with our friends at THD by calling or texting 973-980-2775, emailing or stopping by the deli at 71 1st St. in South Orange.

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS to make it all happen!  If you’d like to lend a hand, email us at

Rain date is July 2
