2018 World Arts & Music Festival

On July 21 and 22, 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 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.
