Over the course of this weekend, June 16 – 17, the Evanston Art Depot is hosting the 40th Annual Custer’s Last Stand Festival of the Arts at 600 Main Street in Evanston, Illinois. This festival will run both days from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm.
This festival runs along historic Main Street from chicago Avenue to Washington Street and this year, the festival has many activities to keep the entire family entertained. More than 250 artists and craftspeople nationwide will be in attendance, offering pottery, fine arts, ceramics, jewelry, graphic arts, country and home crafts, collectibles, antiques, photographs, and much more. There will be more than 150 local commercial and business exhibitors participating with their giant annual sidewalk sale.
The fair began in 1972 based on the historic Custer Avenue, which was named after the famous General George Armstrong Custer as a thank you for his years of service. This fair is a non-profit corporation which regularly receives more than 70,000 participants at each year’s event. Besides artists and craftspeople, there will be performances on the two stages, a children’s fun and play area, and a superb food festival with some mouth-watering offers. A complete schedule of locations and times is available for download.
Print companies may have produced poster printing and flyer printing to assist with the advertising and promotion of this 40-year-old festival. There is no admission fee, as the festival hopes to attract as many people as possible. For additional information on this festival, please visit Custer’s Last Stand Festival of the Arts’ website.
