Check out our Video of the Hackettstown Restaurants Participating in this year’s Virtual Autumn Lamplighter Event! We hope you try them all!

What would an Autumn in Hackettstown be without the annual Autumn Lamplight Dinner? That’s exactly what we at the Hackettstown BID have been asking ourselves, too! With that in mind, we’ve decided to forge ahead and present the Autumn Lamplight Dinner in 2020, but in a way that’s safe for all during these challenging times.

While we won’t be gathering as a large group to taste samplings from Hackettstown’s phenomenal restaurants in person, we’ve reimagined this year’s event to offer everyone a new kind of “taste.” In addition, we’ve decided that one night just won’t do – try FIVE days/nights of Autumn Lamplight Dinner festivities in the form of Autumn Lamplight Dinner specials available for purchase at participating Hackettstown BID restaurants and food establishments!

From Wednesday, October 21 through Sunday, October 25, visit restaurants/food related establishments listed on as participating in this year’s Autumn Lamplight Dinner. The Autumn Lamplight Dinner take-out specials will be available during those dates only, so get them while you can.

Please post a photo of you and yours enjoying an Autumn Lamplight Dinner special. Name the dish and the restaurant you visit. You can tag the restaurant and @HackettstownBID. We hope you visit as many as you can!
