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 and this year we will be taking a limited number of vendors. New in 2015, the Arts and Crafts Committee is proud to present a section of student vendors, both from Johns Hopkins University as well as the Maryland Institute College of Art.

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. There have been some small changes to the application and contract. Please, take the time to read them carefully before returning both the contract and application, which you can find attached to this email. You may submit both the application and contract through the mail, by sending them to the address listed in the application, or simply emailing us the scanned versions. Can't wait to see you at Fair!


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.

Food Vendor Application


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 and we would love to get you involved! If you are interested in performing on the Beach or Beer Garden stage, send an email to us at springfairmusic@gmail.com! Include your name, contact information, and any samples of your work you’d like to show! 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!
