World Arts and Music Festival

1700 Sheridan Road,
Evanston, IL 60201

Evanston’s lakefront will be transformed into a Global Village for the World Arts + Music Festival, a two-day celebration of global diversity. This free event features art from an abundance of countries, family crafts activities, international cuisine, and live music and dance performances. Attendees will enjoy continuous performances throughout the weekend at two venues at the Arrington Lakefront Lagoon in Dawes Park and Centennial Park. The festival runs from 12pm until 7pm each day.

The World Arts + Music Festival is sponsored by the City of Evanston Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department and partially supported by the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
