Communiversity set for April 28

Princeton NJ — The Communiversity celebration, which annually brings the town and University together for a day of performances, food, games and more, is planned for noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 28.

Scheduled to take place rain or shine on Nassau and Witherspoon streets and the campus, the event is sponsored by students at the University and the Arts Council of Princeton. Merchants, nonprofit organizations, musicians, performing and visual artists, food vendors and 70 University student organizations and performing groups will turn the area into a colorful fairground with events for students and families alike.

Numerous student and community groups will perform on four stages, and the streets of Princeton and the front of campus will be filled with vendors, information booths, art exhibits and food stands.

This year, the Arts Council is hoping to expand the Communiversity spirit to encompass the entire weekend. …

The Princeton University Band will begin the festivities with a pre-Communiversity concert at the intersection of Nassau and Witherspoon streets at 11:45 a.m. Campus Communiversity activities will feature: more than a dozen performing groups on a stage near Stanhope Hall, including the Princeton University Players, Naacho, diSiac and three student bands; numerous student organization booths and demonstrations by the cheerleaders and the Kokikai Aikido martial arts club in front of Nassau Hall; and performances by the University’s a cappella groups in the East Pyne arch.

Tours of the campus by the student-led Orange Key guide service will leave from in front of Nassau Hall throughout the festival. The Cotsen Children’s Library and the University Art Museum will team up near the Scheide Caldwell House to host “The Great Eye-Scape,” a table where children can decorate eye glasses and see the world in a different way — ideally as artists and writers. The University’s tiger mascot will roam the festivities to greet kids of all ages. New this year will be a scavenger hunt, both on and off campus. 

The University’s International Center will continue its tradition of participation with an elaborate flag procession led by Chinese lion dancers beginning at 2 p.m. on the Nassau Street stage and ending on campus. Each flag will represent a Princeton student’s home country. As the culmination of a month of programming for the International Festival, Communiversity will sponsor a “Global Village,” featuring food, information booths, performances and artwork from around the world.

This year, the Arts Council is hoping to expand the Communiversity spirit to encompass the entire weekend. For more information on events that begin Friday, April 27, contact the Arts Council at 924-8777 or visit www.artscouncilofprinceton. org; for more information about Communiversity, also call the University’s Office of Community and Regional Affairs at 258-5144.
