While many of us are tying to finish art fair applications and “finalizing” our summer schedule, word on the street says that the Evanston Lakeshore Arts Festival has been discontinued. After 43 years, they have decided to cease with producing the art fair. No official word as to why… nor any direct announcement to their artists… just a simple “discontinued” message on their website. So after nearly a decade of playing on the lakefront, enjoying my beautiful “backyard” booth view of the Lake, and chatting with my North Shore clients … mwah, mwah mwah… NO MORE FUN IN EVANSTON!!!
So, for those of you who used to stop by and shop in Evanston, please plan accordingly. And if anyone out there has any recommendations for a “new-to-me” art fair that I should consider, please let me know. Unfortunately, a lot of application deadlines have already passed. But maybe there’s a way to squeeze something in still.
Thanks to all of my Evanston Peeps for a decade of fun at the Evanston Lakeshore Arts Festival. I hope to see you “somewhere” in the very near future!!!
