Events

We care about the safety and well-being of our community above all else.  For the 2 years, in lieu of in-person gatherings, we created regular virtual programming and special broadcasts for each of our events; you can watch the replay of those programs here. In Spring 2021, we eased back into some live events, and we are planning a full roster of events in 2022! Click Here for a full schedule of 2022 events, and stay tuned for details below. We will continue streaming live broadcasts of each of our events, so that anyone can access them, regardless of your ability to attend in-person. For the latest updates, please tune in to our Facebook page.

The most whimsical day of the year in downtown Princeton is back! Don your faerie wings, grab some glitter and join the fun! The day begins at 11 a.m. with sidewalk chalk, face painting, costuming and joyous festivity. We will make our way to the sidewalk in front of the New Farmer's Market site (next to Oasis Market Gas Station at 702 Mercer Street) at 12:30 p.m. and begin marching at 1 p.m. down Mercer Street. Costumes, wings, puppets, glitter, and non-motorized floats are welcome and highly encouraged. Anyone is welcome to join the parade! (No motorized vehicles are allowed.) After the parade we will make our way to the Town Square for drumming, dancing and general merriment.
