About Us

A tradition started in 1972

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!

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 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, a petting zoo, magic, face painting, and much much more!

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 and this year we will be taking a limited number of vendors.


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.


Good tunes, good vibes.

Music is a HUGE part of Spring Fair! We have two stages packed with artists all weekend and one headlining concert on either Friday or Saturday night. The two weekend-long stages, on the Beach and in the Beer Garden, showcase local artists. In the past, Friday night headliners have included J. Cole, Nelly, The Chainsmokers, A$AP Ferg and Steve Aoki.
