Join us for a brand new event!
On September 29 from 12-6 pm, Evanston Made, along with Downtown Evanston, will present the Maker's Market. This event will take place during Oktoberfest and benefit from the crowds already coming to our downtown.
With over 100 artists and artisans on the 5 level in the Maple Avenue Garage it'll be a great way to connect with new customers and sell work in a casual and fun alternative environment.
Participating Makers will be given 2 parking spaces to display their goods as they wish. They can set up a table or booth. The can pull their car in and open the hatch! A children's section for our younger craftspeople will also be created.
The Maple Avenue Garage can be found at 1800 Maple Ave. Evanston, IL 60201. Exhibitors will be stationed on the 5 Floor in covered areas.
