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!
Smack in the middle of the Baltimore community, Johns Hopkins Spring Fair invites not just undergraduates to enjoy the fun-filled weekend, but families from the surrounding neighborhoods as well. Families with kids can look forward to enjoying the standard food and music as well as an entire section just for kids. Enjoy pony rides, pet zoo animals, magic, face painting and much much more!
No need to be jealous of the kiddie bounce house because our festival features games and contests for patrons of all ages.
Whether watching the pie eating contest or taking a ride on the mechanical bull, you'll be sure to have an unforgettable time.
Caricatures by Rick (Freshman Quad by AMR I): 12 - 3PM
Pie Eating Contest (Freshman Quad by AMR I): 2 - 2:30PM
Each year, the food selection is one of the most popular and diverse aspects of Spring Fair. Always an enormous success, Spring Fair attracts over 20,000 people to the Johns Hopkins University campus every year from the greater Baltimore area and beyond. Spring Fair could not be a success without the enticing scents and exquisite tastes from the food court.
Vendor applications are now closed. Check back in the fall for information about Spring Fair 2018!

Music is a huge part of Spring Fair where we have two stages packed with artists all weekend and one headlining concert on Friday night. In the past, the Friday night headliners have included J. Cole, Nelly, and The Chainsmokers. The two weekend-long stages, on the Beach and in the Beer Garden, showcase local artists! If you aren’t an artist, be sure to come check out all the great music we have to offer to the The Johns Hopkins students and surrounding community!
