Hundreds of people came out for the Evanston World Arts and Music Festival at Dawes Park on the lakefront July 15 and 16. Attendees enjoyed art, family craft activities, live music and dance, and cuisine from around the globe.

Sponsored by the City of Evanston Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department, and partially supported by the Illinois Arts Council, the event was previously known as the Ethnic Arts Festival, held annually on
the third weekend in July since 1986.
