The Evergreen Park Recreation Department is busy at work planning an event that is new to the Village. On Saturday, February 22, they will present “FantaSciFest”- a day-long celebration of fantasy/comic/pop art and culture.

The event will feature vendor tables for artists/sellers who would like to display/sell their artwork or merchandise, all within this genre being celebrated. Day-long games of Dungeons and Dragons will be taught and played. A film screening room will be set up for programs to run throughout the day, with topics and material to interest spectators of all ages. Visitors are welcome to dress as a favorite character, or a character of their own. These folks, called CosPlayers, can walk the festival all day and are invited to take part in a competition at 6 p.m. A photo area will be setup for selfies with the spectators. (CosPlayers are reminded that this is a family-friendly event, costumes must be appropriate for such).
