(formerly Fountain Square Art Festival)
Expect something fresh and new. Exciting changes are in store for downtown Evanston this June when what was known as the Fountain Square Art Festival for the past 37 years rebrands itself in 2017 as “Evanston Chamber Artisan SummerFest.”
In its 38th year, the biggest change for the North Shore’s oldest juried fine arts fair (beside the name change) will be its mix of art. Yes, the eclectic works of more than 100 juried artists will be back. Now add to that the creative wares of 30 artists who make eco-friendly art from recycled and found materials. They will be showcased in a new stand-alone “Remix” area within the fest. (Many of these artists were participants in the former Logan Square art happening known as Remix Chicago.)
In addition, the Remix area will offer free educational workshops each day for both adults and children.
Beyond art, craft beer and wine tastings will be held each afternoon between 2:00-6:00 p.m. With the purchase of a tasting pass, visitors can sample up to 15 specialty microbrews and fine wines.
The fest will also feature strolling street musicians and performers, food and a kids’ area where children and families can have fun in helping to create an urban art installation that will be put on display in Evanston.
A $5 suggested fest gate donation for adults benefits the Evanston Chamber of Commerce.
Remix - Rethink - Recycle Art
Now incorporated into the Evanston Chamber Artisan SummerFest, Remix prides itself as being one of the area’s most authentic and unique summer events. Our artists transform everyday objects into some of the most creative art anywhere.
Remix artists will be featured in a specific portion of this year's festival. Please check your pocket guide when you join us for more details on the exact location.
In addition to artists, Remix will feature FREE kid and adult friendly workshops.
