The Ethnic Arts Festival returns to Evanston’s Dawes Park for its 26th year this weekend.

There’ll be live music, dance performances and arts and craft work of juried artists.

The festival runs from noon to 7 p.m. in the park at Sheridan Road at Church Street on Saturday and Sunday.

With the park’s lagoons ringed by the flags of more than 100 nations attendees experience the colors, sounds, and aromas of world cultures. Organizers say every continent is represented in song, dance, spoken word, visual arts and food.
