Our favorite fall activity is just around the corner! On Sunday, October 20th, join us at Evanston Art Center from 3:00-6:00 pm for Craft Beer Fest (formerly Something’s Cooking). North Shore’s favorite local restaurants, bakeries, and breweries will join us for a tasty evening with delightful treats! Mark your calendars today to guarantee you won’t miss out on this fun fall favorite!
We are looking forward to signature dishes available to sample, giving us all a taste of Chicago and the North Shore’s best offerings. From pasta to pizza and tacos to cupcakes, a ticket to Craft Beer Fest provides you with the opportunity to find new favorites! Plus, don’t miss the event’s new themed raffle baskets for the chance to place the winning bid on excellent items.
This Year: Student & Young Professional Tickets
For 4 weeks, ticket prices remain the same as last year at $60 per ticket for adults. This early bird price will become $75 after the 4 weeks are up until the Friday before the event. Tickets at the door will be $85 – so buy early!
However, new in 2019, Independent Futures is offering reduced ticket prices for students and young professionals (under 26) at $30 per ticket. Children 10 and under receive free entry.
All adults will be required to show an ID when checking in at Craft Beer Fest this year, so don’t leave it at home! We will announce tickets are on sale on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter as soon as we can.
New Chances to Win
In the past, Craft Beer Fest featured a wine pull and a silent auction. This year, we want to make it possible for more guests to win!
Keep an eye out for the beer and wine pull, as well as two gift card trees. The gift card trees are always a surprise – you never know whether you will win a $25 gift card to Target or a gift card for $50 to local restaurants like Five & Dime.
Instead of a silent auction, this year there will be four themed raffle baskets available to win! Watch for more news about Craft Beer Fest to learn more.
