A look back at JHU Spring Fair 2014

Thousands turned out over the weekend to enjoy one of the oldest and most beloved traditions at Johns Hopkins, the annual Spring Fair.

The three-day event, billed as the largest student run festival in the country, brought more than 20 bands and other musical performers (including headline artist J. Cole) and more than 70 arts and crafts vendors to the university's Homewood campus.

Visitors also enjoyed the famous Spring Fair food court, with food vendors from up and down the East Coast. Highlights included wood-fired pizza, blooming onions, old-fashioned soda, fried Oreos, red velvet cupcakes, and (of course) funnel cake.

For children there were games, carnival rides, magicians, and a petting zoo.

Spring Fair was first held in 1972 (though the event was called "3400 on Stage" then).

Spring Fair 2014 was organized by a team of 45 undergraduates, with the assistance of two faculty advisors.
