Founding Day Celebration Event Poster

3/11 UPDATE:

In the interest of precaution, prevention and care for our community, the Township of Millburn has decided to postpone our Founding Day Celebration, scheduled for Sunday, March 15, until further notice

This decision comes after much thought and consideration for balancing respect for public health concerns as a result of COVID-19 and a desire to continue with community building events and public engagement.

Stay tuned. We will communicate with the public as we reschedule this event for a later date.

163 years ago on March 20, the great community of Millburn, previously known as Milltown, Millville, Rum Brook and Vauxhall, was founded! We ask that residents still celebrate our Founding Day safely and comfortably with your family.
