Celebrate at Princeton’s biggest street bash

June 6, 2016

Walk through downtown Princeton and listen to live music on Saturday, June 11 during Celebrate Princeton. This annual street fair on Mercer Street is filled with music, car and quilt shows, a bouncy house, face painting, food (yum!) and craft vendors.

We can’t wait to try the newest addition to the festival – a mobile zip line. For $5, riders can zip down Mercer Street above the crowds.  You can find the zip line at the fountain, near the post office.

Also, be prepared to laugh at the three dogs performing their own act – Mutts Gone Nuts. You will find plenty of things to do with the family. Kids will love the free cotton candy, carnival rides and more.

Of course, you can’t leave without eating your favorite fair food. The smell of hot dogs, funnel cakes and popcorn will lead you straight to the food tents. Who doesn’t like a good bake sale?

Car show lovers can find their favorite part of the festival on 8th Street. The classic cars will line up all the way to the end of the block, stopping at Oasis Market, right next to the mural of fiddler Blind Alfred Reed. The quilt show will be inside of the Fred Gilbert Activity Center.
