Downtown Evanston celebrates Hygge Fest

February 11 @ 11:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Join us Saturday, February 11, at Fountain Square for an outdoor Hygge Fest celebration. Bring your family and friends from 12 to 2pm to watch live ice carving, enjoy a cup of complimentary hot chocolate and make s’mores with Gearhead Outfitters.

From 11am to 7pm, warm up in My Sauna Club, a mobile sauna right at Fountain Square! You can reserve the entire sauna for 6 people or share a sauna session with new friends. After, head to Newport Coffee or Patisserie Coralie to enjoy a coffee and pastry or check out some cozy items at local shops. Book a sauna session here.

Take part in a creative workshop, yoga or meditation class or check out the shopping and dining specials taking place throughout the month.
