Ethnic arts fest returns to Evanston lakefront
Evanston's Ethnic Arts Festival sets up shop at Dawes Park on the Evanston Lakefront for its 27th annual run this weekend.
Festival hours are noon to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Dawes Park is located at Sheridan Road and Church Street.
Surrounded by the flags of more than 100 nations arrayed around the park lagoon, exhibitors will be offering art work for sale from traditions from around the world, and they will be a variety of musical performances and food options to add to the festival atmosphere.
