Thousands of people from the University and local communities enjoyed activities, performances, food and more at the 47th annual Communiversity Artsfest celebration Sunday, April 30, in downtown Princeton and on the Princeton University campus.
Merchants, nonprofit organizations, musicians, performing and visual artists, food vendors, and many University student organizations and performing groups turned the area into a colorful fairground for the afternoon. Communiversity is presented by students at the University and the Arts Council of Princeton.
The Princeton University Band kicks off Communiversity with a march up Witherspoon Street.
Decked in the University's colors of orange and black, volunteers oversee craft activities on the front lawn of Nassau Hall.
A variety of styles of music, from choir to rock, as well as dance and comedy sets were featured on six performance stages — one on campus and five in town.
Old NasSoul, which specializes in soul music, is one of about a dozen student a cappella groups that performed at an arch at East Pyne Hall throughout the afternoon.
One of the distinctive elements of Communiversity is the International Flag Parade, in which University students, scholars and their families represent their countries, ending at Nassau Hall.
From popcorn and cotton candy to barbecue, crepes, cupcakes, falafel, pizza and water ice, Communiversity attendees had a wide array of snacking and dining options.
Communiversity extends into Princeton's Palmer Square, where attendees can rest and enjoy the festival atmosphere.
At the 6th Annual TRASH ARTstravaganza, students from Princeton High School won the prize in the 14-17 years-of-age category for their entry, Odyssey of the Mind, with costumes, furniture, and scenery all made from repurposed materials.
