Johns Hopkins Spring Fair is all about having fun. As America's largest student-run three day festival, we on Spring Fair 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 80 unique arts and crafts vendors on JHU's main quad for the community. Most of our vendors sell commercial or handmade products, as well as some non-profit vendors who have booths to spread awareness for various causes. Newly starting in 2015, the Arts and Crafts Committee is also proud to present a section of student vendors, both from Johns Hopkins University as well as the Maryland Institute College of Art.

We are no longer accepting new vendor applications.


For the concert on Friday, April 24, we are excited to collaborate with the HOP and bring Nelly and his supporting artist Luke Christopher. Nelly’s new album “M.O.” featuring guest appearances by Nicki Minaj, Pharell, Future, T.I., 2 Chainz, Florida Georgia Line, Daley, and more dropped this October to much critical acclaim. Luke Christopher, a dynamic young rapper from L.A., will be opening for Nelly. He’s notable for his seamless ability to blur the lines between musical genres and show his true love for the game. His most notable mixtape “TMRW, TMRW” was released in July of 2012. See below to view the lineup of artists for the weekend.
