Downtown Evanston is excited to host Thursday Night Markets, a monthly, fun-filled evening featuring a variety of artists, makers, and retail shops.
The markets take the first Thursday of each month - June 1, July 6, August 3 and September 7 - from 4-8pm at Fountain Square. Bring the family to browse the artist tents and dance at Fountain Square followed by dinner or a sweet treat at a nearby restaurant.
New this year, we are having live music at the plaza across Davis Street. Join us on June 1 to enjoy the music of Ruby in a Bucket of Dimes.
Get ready for a weekend of the best summer shopping! From July 21-23, independent shops and national retailers will set up racks and tables with too-good-to-resist deals on the sidewalks throughout downtown. For the sixth year in a row, Downtown Evanston is hosting a Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest to add color and design to the downtown sidewalks and create a friendly, artsy competition between businesses, artists and families in Evanston. Stay tuned for details.
