Get ready for a weekend of the best summer shopping!

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. On Saturday, July 23 between 9am and 3pm, twenty-two artists of all levels and ages will create chalk designs at businesses. Family and younger artists will be stationed outside of One River School at 1033 Davis St. while high school and adult artists will be set up at the businesses with an asterisk below. Take a stroll around downtown to watch the artists in action! 

Help us celebrate our new brand for Downtown Evanston on Saturday, July 23, 11am-4pm at Fountain Square. We'll have big games like Jenga, Connect 4, Ping Pong, Bag Toss, a henna artist, and other kids activities and fun giveaways for the family! Details here.
