Autumn Craft & Treasure Market (ACTM)
October 30 - October 31$1
Evolving over nearly a half century, the Autumn Craft & Treasure Market, hosted by the Sycamore Music Boosters, has become one of the best craft fairs in the Midwest. Situated during lovely Illinois autumn, just before the holidays and synchronous with the Sycamore Pumpkin Festival (one of the largest festivals in the Midwest), the Market draws about 6,000 shoppers to more than 100 booths in an indoor, climate-controlled facility. Craft fair vendors, the majority of whom are small businesses, offer thousands of unique and eclectic items ranging from textiles to jewelry to art to home decorations to foods and spices to pet paraphernalia.
Vendors enjoy free setup help from volunteering Sycamore students, and shoppers enjoy free, on-site parking at Sycamore High School. Thanks to loaner golf carts supplied by the Sycamore Park District, shoppers can get free rides to/from vehicles. Hungry or thirsty? No need to leave: the Treasure Market will also offer a variety of foods, beverages and desserts.
All proceeds benefit Sycamore music programs.
