What is the MashUp?
The MashUp is uniquely Evanston: a starlit evening of conversation and connections with a wide range of characters—from entrepreneurs to executives, artists to accountants, and city leaders to CEOs. Join the celebration and enjoy a late summer evening in the big tent with amazing food, great music, and the eclectic and electric essence of our community.
