We are using protobuf successfully in several projects. It has reasonable support for schema evolution and serialization is fast and the result is compact. Integration into build and IDE is also OK. I see that avro comes with the advantage of a generic readable deserialization format and allows to check schemas for compatibility, but typically you have to have access to the writer's schema, which introduces some complexity especially in a distributed environment. We did not really evaluate others but the are numerous comparisons out there already, so you just might want to google them :-)

I was wondering about parquet
I can find avro and protobuf articles
but not a lot of info on parquet for event sourcing
