Attend the 2019 Winter Art & Crafts Expo

Is anyone ever ready for winter? This year, the snow arrived early, but don’t fret. Instead of letting the weather cramp your style, attend the Winter Art & Crafts Expo in Evanston. Step out in style with friends and family at the biggest annual craft show in the greater Chicago area. You’re sure to have a great time!

2019 Winter Art & Crafts Expo (now until December 21st)

This year marks the 16th year of the Winter Arts & Crafts Expo. You’ll find the works of over 140 artists on display. There’ll be jewelry, glass ornaments, photographic masterpieces, ceramics, and more.

This winter festival will be held at the Evanston Art Center (EAC) on Central Street. Note that there will be many small events to attend during the expo. So, be sure to check the full calendar of events at the Evanston Art Center website.

Attractions at the Expo

General shopping will take place outside of the auction on weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on weekends from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

A few special shopping events are on the schedule for the month-long festival. You can attend the Jewelry Fest on December 7th from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. There will also be an open house event at the Evanston Art Center on the same day from noon to 4:00 p.m. And, the men won’t be left out. The Men’s Shopping Day will commence on December 14th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Any special deals or offers will vary from vendor to vendor. However, with over 140 artisans at the expo, you’ll find variety in more than just the prices.

Above all, don’t miss the Evanston Art Center Student Expo, which will be held from the 3rd to the 21st of December.
