Princeton Festival of the Arts
The countdown is on for Communiversity, one of Central New Jersey's most well-known events and beloved annual traditions. This year's celebration of the arts is slated for Sunday, April 27, 2014 (rain or shine), from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Presented by the Arts Council of Princeton and the students of Princeton University, the event originated as "The Art People's Party" on the lawn of Nassau Hall in 1970. Later renamed Communiversity to capture the Town-Gown spirit of the event, the popular arts festival has grown to attract more than 35,000 visitors to Princeton, NJ each spring.
Communiversity Festival of the Arts 2014 will feature more than 200 artists, crafters, and merchants from around the tri-state area; continuous live entertainment on five stages; children's activities and games; a wide array of delicious food from around the globe; and a broad representation of the many businesses and organizations that play a prominent role in the vibrant life of the Princeton community.
The event takes place in downtown Princeton on Nassau and Witherspoon Streets, in Palmer Square (on the Green), and throughout the University campus.
Public parking is available in lots and garages located on Chambers Street, Hulfish Street (next to Halo Pub), and Spring Street. Additional parking can be found on side streets throughout town.
Admission to the event is free for the public.
