DEADLINE TO APPLY IS JANUARY 8, 2019
The Evanston Art and Big Fork Festival is held on the closed streets of downtown Evanston, Illinois, a city of 75,000 people just north of Chicago and home to Northwestern University. Admission is free to the public. Art Festival hours are 4pm – dusk on Friday, 10am-dusk on Saturday, and 10am-5pm on Sunday.
Art is in all price points, so that everyone from college students to long time collectors can find something right for them. Art includes classic categories such as paintings, sculpture, photography, as well as fun usable art such as unique handmade jewelry, one-of-a kind furniture and home accessories, mixed media work, glass, wood, wearable art, art made from recycled materials and much more!
On its own block and separate from the artists, many of Evanston’s great restaurants will serve up their wonderful food as festival goers listen to live music.
Evanston supports its festivals with enthusiasm and purchasing power!
Artists will have the opportunity to interact with the public through art demos and booth chats. Live music, great food and fun activities for kids make the festival a perfect experience for all.
