Many locals will want to take advantage of the opportunity to display their art, sell their wares and food items, or promote their businesses by applying to an upcoming festival.

Cranbury non-profit organizations, entertainers, local artists, crafters, food, beverage and merchandise vendors will be interested to know that the Arts Council of Princeton is now taking applications for its Communiversity ArtsFest 2016 coming in a few months.

The goal of the festival will be, as in years past, to celebrate the diversity and talents of the skilled regional and local artists.

The event will showcase more than 200 booths of contemporary crafts, original art, local distinctive merchandise, food, and six stages of continuous entertainment. Usually, it attracts in excess of 40,000 attendees.

The event will be juried and all crafts must be handmade. The event will be held no matter what the weather, and there will be a $30 nonrefundable application fee. All beverages must be nonalcoholic and all participants must supply their own power.

Interested participants will want to get their applications approved as soon as possible to get any banner printing, business cards, promotional items, and flyers ready in plenty of time before the event.

All applications must be submitted by February 23. Requests for applications can be made either online at the Arts Council of Princeton website, or at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, 102 Witherspoon Street, Princeton.
