Evanston MashUp 2021 Becomes Block Party!

We’ve expanded the MashUp OUTSIDE to the east and the west of PALMHOUSE, transforming it into a veritable Block Party. Enjoy delicious bites and sips from more than 20 of Evanston’s tastiest establishments plus live music and live art showcasing the talent of our community. Check out the participating restaurants and our sponsors.

It wouldn’t be a MashUp without a few pop-up surprises — so prepare yourself for fun evening on September 29th.
