About Spring Fair

April 28-30, 2017

Johns Hopkins Spring Fair is all about having fun. As America's largest student-run three day festival, we on the Spring Fair staff strive to bring the greater Baltimore area the best of the best each and every year. We organize and execute an extensive number of events on Homewood Campus which include but are not limited to carnival rides, games and contests, an ever-expanding food court, and beer garden. As a dedicated and fun-loving group of individuals, we cannot wait to host the best Spring Fair weekend Hopkins has seen yet!

Arts & Crafts

For over 40 years, Johns Hopkins Spring Fair has been a longstanding tradition in Baltimore. The Arts and Crafts committee of Johns Hopkins Spring Fair assembles a selection of about 60 unique arts and crafts vendors on JHU's main quad for the community. Most of our vendors sell commercial or handmade products.


This year, we will be seeing a lot of changes in the set-up of Spring Fair due to construction on campus. With location details still being finalized, we cannot provide you with the new map of the festival; however, we’re very excited about the changes. We can assure you that we will be doing our best to make move-in and move-out convenient for vendors and the Arts and Crafts area just as accessible to visitors.


Applications for Spring Fair 2017 are now CLOSED. We are thrilled to see the vendors in less than a month. If you didn't have a chance to apply, please apply next year!

Let us know if you have any questions at artsandcrafts@springfair.gmail.com.



Vendor applications are now closed. Check back in the fall for information about Spring Fair 2018!

Cole, Nelly, and The Chainsmokers. The two weekend-long stages, on the Beach and in the Beer Garden, showcase local artists!
