What is the Big Evanston Block Party? The Big Evanston Block Party is a music-focused street festival taking place on August 25 & 26, 2018, at the intersection of Chicago & Dempster in Evanston, IL. This event is curated by SPACE and powered by Half Acre Beer Company. The fest caps off SPACE’s summer of Out of Space events celebrating the venue’s 10th anniversary.

Do I need to buy tickets? This event is free with a $5 suggested donation at the gate benefiting Rainbows for Children. Donations are cash only; please plan accordingly. We highly recommend RSVPing through our event pages (August 25 here; August 26 here) to receive important event updates and announcements.
