Evanston Chamber Artisan SummerFest

(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 largest and oldest fine arts fair (beside the name change) will be its mix of art. Yes, the eclectic works of more than 150 juried artists will be back. But add to that mix the works of artists who make eco-friendly art from recycled and found materials. (Many of these artists have had their wares showcased at the former creative showcase known as Remix Chicago.)

Beyond art, back again will be craft beer and wine tastings 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.

Also returning in 2017 will be live music, food, and the always-popular "FamilyFest" activity area overseen by the Evanston Art Center.
