Evanston Oktoberfest celebrates Evanston's craft breweries and distillery as well as Chicago area breweries. Enjoy food from some of Evanston's finest restaurants including Smylie Brothers, Peckish Pig, Yeero Revolution, Bangers & Lace, La Cocinita and more! 

We are excited to announce that The War and Treaty will perform at this year's fest along with Big Sadie and DJ Dustin Harris! With this great lineup of music plus beer and food, we can't imagine any other way to spend Sunday afternoon. 

Evanston Oktoberfest will take place at the parking lot behind the Hilton Garden Inn located at 1818 Maple Avenue (the location of the Downtown Evanston Farmer's Market). 

Evanston Oktoberfest is a fundraiser for Downtown Evanston, a nonprofit organization that manages and markets the downtown Evanston business district. Support our continued efforts to make downtown Evanston a vibrant place to live, work and play!
