The Clifton Recreation Department is Hosting a Holiday Door Decorating Contest

Enter the City of Clifton's Holiday Door Decorating Contest. Deadline for registering is Friday, December 2nd. Decorate your door for the Holidays with family and friends. Doors must be ready for judging by Monday, December 5th. You will be contacted via email to inform you when the preliminary judging will take place (when registering let us know if you need to be notified about preliminary judging by phone instead of email). We cannot return to see doors if they have not been completed on time. After that date, a second visit will take place for final judging. You do not have to be home when judging takes place. Winners will be contacted by phone and email after judging is completed. All participants receive a small gift for entering the contest. Ten (10) winners will be selected based on various categories such as colorful, creative, beautiful, best theme, patriotic, craftsmanship, old fashioned, unusual, original and child creation. You do not need to choose a specific category when registering unless you are entering the “Child Creation” (a door that is completely created and constructed by a child/children) category. Participants who live in a multi-family/apt. homes must decorate a door that judges can access at any time (i.e. main door must be unlocked to get into lobby to see a specific door) to leave an entry gift, take photos and see the decorations up close.

Register online, by telephone (973) 470-5956, or at the Recreation Office. Please Note: If registering online you must complete the entire online registration process to the end in order for your door to be validated and your name to be placed on the list for judging. Online registration ends at 4:00PM on 12/2/22.
