To celebrate making it through a very difficult year, join the Evanston Chamber of Commerce, the City of Evanston and Northwestern University and hundreds of other Evanstonians on Wednesday, Sept. 29 at the MashUp 2021: Welcome Back, Evanston Block Party!
MashUp is an evening of connecting, sharing stories, meeting friends old and new, all while savoring some amazing eats from many of Evanston’s leading restaurateurs, celebrating all things Evanston and enjoying some local music.
We’ve had a decade of annual MashUps! The last MashUp was held in 2019 at Northwestern University with over 900 of our community’s best. Last year, we of course were sheltering in place, not in a tent with hundreds of other Evanstonians.
This year we are so pleased to be coming together again, especially since MashUp is being held at one of the hottest new event venues, Palmhouse, an Evanston-based 10,000-square-foot event and music space as well as on Callan Street to give us a proper block party experience.
Proceeds from the MashUp will fuel the chamber’s services for our City’s small businesses, many of whom are owned by people of color, struggling to rebuild in this new normal. We will also be giving away MashUp Moola again to recognize the extraordinary efforts of Evanstonians during the pandemic.
Enjoy delicious bites and sips from over 20 of Evanston’s tastiest establishments plus live music and live art showcasing the talent of our community.
To insure the safety of our guests, we will require proof of vaccination at the door or negative COVID-19 test results from within 72 hours of the event. Masks will be required when guests are enjoying the beautiful indoor Palmhouse space at 619 Howard St. The event is scheduled from 5:30 to 9 p.m. on Sept. 29.
Early bird tickets are $100, regular price is $125. Registration closes at noon Tuesday, Sept. 28. On-site ticket sales are not guaranteed. For more information or to buy tickets, click this link.
