The Evanston Art and Big Fork Festival is this weekend. An event not to miss that is fun for the whole family. It kicks off at 4:00 PM Friday and offers live music, artists displaying and selling their work in booths and tons of great food.
The City of Evanston Il describes the event as, “a weekend-long celebration of local art and flavorful fare. Kicking off 4pm Friday with live music and tasty fare, the festival will feature local food and drinks. Live music will fill the streets of Evanston for more fun! The festival will feature original high-end work from artists available for purchase, perfect for gifts or a signature addition to a personal collection. ”
I try to attend this event every year and always enjoy every aspect of the festival. The hours are Friday from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM and Saturday from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM and then ends Sunday with the Evanston Art and Big Fork Festival going from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Folks who attend will be treated to live music and a great selection of wonderful food. There will be about 130 artists showing their work and you can take it home if you like. The Evanston IL Patch a loca news source describes the offers as.
Traditional mediums such as painting, sculpture, and photography will be showcased alongside unique, usable art, including handmade jewelry, one-of-a-kind furniture, and home accessories. All this taking place in downtown Evanston is truly a blast.

Another first and super cool aspect to the event is that the Spinal Cord Injury Association of Illinois is the charity chosen for the Green Ribbon Project for this festival. Participating artists put the green ribbon on a piece of their choice in their booth and IF the piece is sold the artist agrees to give 10% of the proceeds to the Spinal Cord Injury Association of Illinois.
See you this weekend at the festival. Evanston has so much to offer in the way of entertainment. Bring the kids and your camera. You will defiantly come away with the feeling that you really enjoyed yourself at the Evanston Art and Big Fork Festival.
