'Kits, 'Cats and Kids Block Party

'Kits, 'Cats and Kids Block Party


Evanston residents of all ages are invited to celebrate the back to school season at the 'Kits, 'Cats and Kids Block Party, followed by an ETHS home football game against Barrington on Friday and a primetime Big 10 football game pitting the Northwestern University Wildcats against the Duke Blue Devils at Ryan Field on Saturday, September 17 at 7 p.m.

The 2016 Block Party is scheduled for Thursday, September 15  from 4:45 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. There will be games, arts and crafts, family-friendly activities filling the street, live music, both the ETHS and NU Marching Bands, and lots of dining options. Be sure to come hungry and dine at one of Downtown Evanston's great restaurants or stop by the wide variety of food trucks serving savory and sweet fare.

This year the party moves a block north and expands a block west to make room for more fun! It will take place on Sherman Avenue between Church and Clark Streets and on Clark Street between Sherman and Benson Avenues.
