Downtown Evanston Sidewalk Sale & Chalk Art Contest, July 22-26
Save the dates for the Downtown Evanston annual Sidewalk Sale! From July 22-26, shops in downtown Evanston will set up racks and tables filled with too-good-to-resist deals on clothes, shoes, accessories, outdoor gear, decorative arts, jewelry and more. Masks are required at outdoor tables and racks and inside all stores.
Downtown Evanston will host the 4th annual Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest to add color and design to the sidewalks and create a friendly, artsy competition! The sidewalk in front of businesses will be decorated on Friday evening by 5pm so come out to see the artists in action.
Every summer we host a free, outdoor music series called Thursday Night Live! We'll return in 2020 with another great lineup of bands. Join us every Thursday from 7pm to 9pm to enjoy live music ranging from jazz, classic rock, rockabilly, blues and swing more. This is a free event and all ages are welcome. There are folding chairs and cafe tables and chairs, but feel free to bring your own chairs. In the event of rain, Downtown Evanston will cancel the show by 4pm.
The 2020 schedule will be announced in May 2020. Stay tuned! If you are a band interested in playing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Get HYGGE with us! Pronounced "hue-gah," this Danish expression is an attitude towards life that emphasizes finding joy in everyday moments. Rather than drudge through the winter, hygge is about celebrating coziness, warmth and family, as well as practicing mindfulness.
