This year, the concerts will take place at the newly renovated Fountain Square! The bands will play at the south plaza so guests can sit in both the south and north plaza. We are also adding more activities for kids and working with restaurants to provide dinner specials for concert attendees. Grab a to-go meal from one of the local restaurants to dine al fresco. Chairs are provided, but guests are welcome to bring other seating. 

This is a free event and all ages are welcome. Thursday Night Live, in downtown Evanston, is accessible via public transit by taking the CTA Purple Line “el” to the Davis; or take Metra to the Davis stop. 

Special thanks to our 2018 sponsors for helping to bring free, live music to downtown Evanston!
