(Lewis Street) 

On behalf of our Borough Council, Mayor Glidden, Closter Improvement Committee, Department of Public Works, Police and Fire Department, we thank you for your time and look forward to seeing you soon!

CJC is bringing the heat guaranteed to keep you warm from winter's frost!

5 bands will be rockin' out with beats sure to keep you movin'.

They're loud, funny and perfectly in tune with the merriment of the Season. 

This a cappella group is sure to warm your heart and tickle your funny bone.

This year, we've added a new addition to our tree lighting ceremony. Up to 20 families will go toe-to-toe making one-of-a-kind gingerbread creations! From ginger-homes to ginger-dioramas to lego people, let your imagination run wild! The public will decide which family earns the Title of Gingerbread Titan. All monies collected from this contest will help benefit the Closter Food Pantry.  

Bringing Families Together For A Good Cause


New Jersey Harvest Church 

Lead and conducted by Young-Geun Cha, New Jersey Harvest Church's family centered choir will sing some classic Christmas songs including Joy To The World, The First NoelHark! The Herald Angel Sing, and Angels, We Have Heard On High. 

Scout Sing-A-Longs

Like a famous Elf once said: "The best way to spread some Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!" Join our choir of Girl Scouts and Scouts to sing these merry melodies and spread some Holiday Cheer. Not sure of the words?

No worries! Grab a friend, share a Holiday program and sing together! 

Actual Gingerbread House put together by Linsey Lam 

Contest Rules:

1. All gingerbread creations must fit a baking sheet pan that measures approximately  21"l x 15"w x 1"h.

2. All lights attached to gingerbread creations need to be battery powered.

3. No glue may be used in holding structures together. Only icing or frosting can be used.

Come to this one-of-a-kind, family friendly workshop hosted by Linsey Lam, winner of "Kid's Baking Championship" Season 4 on FOOD NETWORK. Sign-up today! 



5:30 PM - 7:00 PM



Make sure to come to our Closter Tree Ceremony on Sunday, December 8th where we will see these, sugary, artistic marvels of ginger-neering come alive! 

For the last 31 years PBA Local 233 has ran a successful Toy Drive. We started as a small four town Toy Drive and now have grown into an enormous Toy Drive involving 58 local towns. The toys that we collect help sick and needy families including military families. For the month prior to the Toy Drive all 58 towns collect toys and donations. We all gather at the Closter Fire Department and sort the thousands of toys by age group. Multiple charity organizations as well as the Military come out and the toys are loaded into their cars. Once all charities collect we then load a box truck in which we fill and transport to Hackensack Hospital and then distribute to the children on the cancer ward.

Look for the P.B.A. table on December 8th to drop-off a new, unwrapped toy.
