Fifth Ward Festival – Sat. Aug. 27

The Inaugural Fifth Ward Festival will be held on Saturday, August 27 from noon to 8 p.m. at Twiggs Park (Simpson St. and Bridge St.) Hosted for all of Evanston, the event provides residents living outside of the Fifth Ward an opportunity to experience and learn more about the area. A wide variety of booths by local organizations will address the need for jobs and job training, mental health care, voter registration and more, all of which contribute to empowerment and can help reduce gun violence. Police and firefighters will be on hand to share information about public service jobs and mingle with the community.

Performers: Kweku Collins, Manwolves, Chainsaw Dupont, Funkadesi and more.
