About the Event

Downtown Summer Sounds is a free outdoor concert series on Thursday evenings from 5-7PM at Fountain Square, from July 11 to September 26. For nine of the twelve weeks, Downtown Evanston is collaborating with a different local nonprofit (see below) to select the band, activate the Fountain Square plaza, and help us to ensure that the concert series reflects the diversity of our community and features a wide range of musical genres and performers. On the three remaining nights of the 2024 concert series (July 11, August 1, and September 5), Downtown Evanston will also host an outdoor Thursday Night Market,  featuring artists, makers, and retailers from the regional community. * * *  SEE CONCERT SCHEDULE BELOW  * * * During the concerts, there will be beer for sale from Sketchbook Brewing Co., and wine, cocktails and soft drinks for sale from Five & Dime. There will also be several food trucks, and ice cream for sale from the C&W Market & Ice Cream Parlor. After the music ends, be sure to make plans for dinner in Downtown Evanston! Concert attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating. In the event of inclement weather, Downtown Evanston will announce any cancellations by Noon on the day of the concert. Music lineup subject to change. If you have any questions about the concert series, please email info@DowntownEvanston.org. If you're driving into Downtown Evanston for the concert series, we recommend parking in the Sherman Plaza Self Park garage--it's only a block away from Fountain Square. More information about parking. Downtown Evanston is also easily accessible by bike, bus or train!
