On behalf of the Arts Council of Princeton, we are so excited to welcome you to Communiversity ArtsFest – Sunday April 30, 2017 from 1-6pm in Downtown Princeton!

Art People’s Party, 1970


From its humble beginnings as the “Art People’s Party” on the lawn of Nassau Hall in 1970, Communiversity has grown and evolved into what is now Central Jersey’s largest and longest running cultural event, attracting more than 40,000 art-enthusiasts and fun-seekers. We are pleased to partner with the students of Princeton University and the town of Princeton for our 47th annual presentation of this town and gown celebration.

We are particularly grateful to our sponsors without whom Communiversity ArtsFest would not be possible. The Arts Council is thrilled to welcome back Bai Brands as our title sponsor. I was personally introduced to Bai at Communiversity, sampling the flavorful drink some six years ago on that warm spring day. Since that time Bai has grown into an internationally-known brand while remaining deeply rooted in Princeton.

Thank you to Title Sponsor, Bai!





Communiversity ArtsFest is successful due to the collaborative efforts of so many in our community. We value and appreciate our partnership with the town of Princeton, the departments of Public Works, the Police, and Emergency Services, as well as with Princeton University, the Princeton Merchants Association, the Princeton Clergy Association and all of the artists and performers, merchants and nonprofits.


Heartfelt thanks are due to the hard-working, dedicated staff of the Arts Council, our event team at Mary Harris Events and the “army” of local volunteers it takes to make it all happen.

We encourage you to enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of Communiversity ArtsFest 2017.
