The 36th annual Fountain Square Art Festival, Evanston’s salute to summer and the arts presented by the Evanston Chamber of Commerce, returns on June 27 and 28 with more than 200 participating artists, a brand new Brewfest and children’s activities from the Evanston Art Center.

From paintings to photography, sculptures to metalwork, craft beers to pizza, there is fun for the family. The Festival gates will be open from 10 a.m. till 9 p.m. on Saturday for the pop/rock music stage and Brewfest sampling. Sunday hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The festival is free, but donations are suggested.
