Mariboe Gallery holds art shows throughout the academic year. Students and visiting artists exhibit their work and hold panel discussions regularly. Visual Arts faculty also exhibit their work; all of the arts teachers at Peddie are working artists.

"Peddie to Thee," the school's alma mater, is sung at all major events at the school, including Convocation, Founders Day and Commencement. It represents a proud tradition of Peddie songs dating back to the founding of the school in 1864. Here, Peddie singers perform a virtual version as a spring concert during the pandemic.
