No need to battle traffic or malls this year for your holiday shopping—just head over to the Woman’s Club of Evanston. The club’s festive Cornucopia Gift Fair, slated for Nov. 19-21, offers something for everyone on your list.
Gourmet foods, home accessories, apparel and one-of-a-kind jewelry are among the many handcrafted and specialty items you can find at the juried fair. This year’s event will feature unique pieces from returning artists as well as new discoveries from first-time exhibitors.
Besides getting a head start on your gift list, you can feel good knowing you are helping the community; fair proceeds go to support the work of Evanston nonprofits.
Cornucopia opens on Friday, Nov. 19, from 4 to 9 p.m. The fair also takes place on Saturday, Nov. 20, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday, Nov. 21, from noon to 4 p.m. Tickets, which may be purchased at the door, are $10 for Friday night and $6 for Saturday or Sunday. Friday night tickets come with a bonus: three raffle tickets, light appetizers and entertainment, and a weekend pass to shop.
The Woman’s Club of Evanston is located at 1702 Chicago Ave., Evanston. Metered street parking, a lot and a garage are located within walking distance of the club, and the Davis Street CTA and Metra stops are a few blocks west.
