Chicago’s North Shore will be brimming with creativity when Evanston Chamber Artisan SummerFest returns for its 39th inspirational year to the streets of bustling downtown Evanston.
An eclectic mix of art is the centerpiece of this late June happening that also happens to be the North Shore’s oldest fine arts fair. It showcases the works of more than 100 juried artists plus that of nearly 30 creative artisans who make unique eco-friendly art from recycled and found materials.
Beyond art, ticketed wine tastings will be held each afternoon. (With the purchase of a tasting pass, visitors can sample up to 15 varietals.)
The fest also features craft beers, food, smile-inducing street musicians and performers, and fun activities for both kids and families.
A $5 suggested fest gate donation for adults benefits the Evanston Chamber of Commerce.
