The streets around campus and in the community will be filled with fun, food and festivities during the annual Communiversity celebration from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 28.
The event, co-sponsored by students at the University and the Arts Council of Princeton, will take place on the campus and on Nassau and Witherspoon streets, which will be closed to traffic for the afternoon. The celebration is intended to promote cultural awareness on both sides of Nassau Street. This year's event will be dedicated to President and Mrs. Shapiro.
Students and community individuals and groups will present free musical, theatrical and dance performances on stages set up in the area. There will be games, sidewalk craft sales and booths offering a wide variety of foods. Free parking will be available in University lots on William Street, on Washington Road and at Palmer Stadium.
The University's International Festival also will be part of Communiversity, bringing special international booths, food, performances and activities to the event. A highlight will be the 2 p.m. introduction of countries and parade of international flags at center stage at the intersections of Nassau and Witherspoon streets. It will be preceded by a dragon dance.
As part of the celebration for the centennial of the Graduate School, graduate students have been invited to officially participate in the Communiversity program for the first time. Graduate student groups and artists will perform alongside their undergraduate and community colleagues. The Graduate School and Graduate Student Government will sponsor a booth to provide games and activities for children, as well as information about the school.
