Communiversity ArtsFest 2020 is a juried event that is presented by The Arts Council of Princeton. The goal for this festival is to celebrate the talents and diversity of our finest local and regional artists, as well as to provide the public and our selected exhibitors with an event of the highest quality. Please be advised that special consideration is given to Princeton area applicants.

Communiversity ArtsFest 2020 will be held rain or shine. In the event of cancellation due to any circumstances beyond our control, your booth fee will be considered a fully tax-deductible donation to the Arts Council of Princeton in support of its many programs and events for the community.

Participation in prior Communiversity festivals does not guarantee acceptance to the 2020 event.

All applicants must submit the on-line application form, along with a $40 non-refundable application fee, in order to be considered.

The deadline for all Applications is January 31, 2020.  Applications submitted after this date will not be accepted.

The Arts Council of Princeton committee will determine which artists and crafters have been accepted to February 28, 2020.  Confirmations will then be sent by email; no one will be contacted by telephone. Applicants not accepted will be notified by email.

In an effort to reduce landfill waste, the Arts Council of Princeton, in partnership with Sustainable Princeton, ask that you consider the environmental footprint of your booth.  Small changes, such as asking customers if they need a bag rather than automatically providing one, can make a major difference in generated waste. We also discourage the distribution of fliers. Instead, create posters with information about your business and encourage photos. Kindly note, we are no longer allowing balloons, styrofoam materials, or plastic straws. Plastic cups should be recyclable (ie, stamped with #1 or #2 in the rectangular recycling symbol).

Kindly note, not adhering to these requests may prohibit your participation in this event in the future.  Thank you for your help!  Questions?   info@sustainableprinceton.org.
