Upcoming Autumn Events in Old Tappan

As autumn begins and the leaves change color and fall to the ground in Northern New Jersey, our town of Old Tappan has some informative and fun events to attend to help us enjoy and celebrate the season.


  • The Charles Dewolf Middle School students are offering Free Senior Citizen Technology Training Classes.

These classes will take place October 17th and 26th, and November 7th and 14th at CDW Middle School from 11:45am to 12:45pm. This is a great way for our town youth and seniors to interact and learn from each other. Seniors can learn some tech tips such as how to Facetime, text, take and share photos, email, surf the web and create documents. Computers will be provided, just bring your laptop, Ipad or cellphone. Lunch will also be provided. For more information or to sign up for a session, contact Anna Haverilla at or call 201-954-7573.


  • The Old Tappan Recreation Commission and The Woman’s Club of Old Tappan are happy to bring you the 2017 Ragamuffin Parade and Halloween Festival! The Festival takes place October 28th at Oakes park from 1-5pm (Rain date October 29th).

Registration for the costume contest begins at 12:30, and the Ragamuffin parade starts promptly at 1pm. Costume prizes will be awarded by age group and category, and the best-dressed dog even gets a prize! Immediately following the parade are the lawn games, food and beverages and activities such as face painting, a hay ride, and the Old Tappan Maze!

Old Tappan residents can receive 15 free food and beverage tickets by registering online on Community Pass. All other events are free of charge. Volunteers are also needed so please follow the link for more information.


  • The Northern Valley Old Tappan Knights Varsity Football Team is currently undefeated at 5-0. They have two more home games on their schedule: October 13th vs Teaneck HS at 6pm, and October 27th vs Indian Hills HS at 7pm. Please come out to the high school and cheer on our Golden Knights. The games are always a fun way to meet your neighbors and build our community bonds. Go to the following link to keep tabs on when the action happens for all the sports teams at NVOT:
