Vendors information

Antioch’s Bazaar and Arts and Crafts Faires are not “run of the mill” craft faires. These Faires have grown in size over the years to more than 140 booths of handcrafted goods for both the summer and fall events. Antioch’s Faires attract crafters from all around the country. It’s not unusual to meet crafters from California, Florida, Ohio, and the Carolinas. Antioch’s reputation for a great show with an interesting variety of wares draws approximately 5,000 to 12,000 people browsing through each faire. Admission is free for all ages.

All registration for both Antioch’s Summer Bazaar and Antioch’s Fall Arts & Crafts Faire must be submitted through the mail to the Antioch Chamber Office at 882 Main Street, Antioch, IL 60002 (no online registration accepted).
