Celebrating More than a Half Century

In 1972, milk and gasoline were less than $1 a gallon, Americans began hearing about something called Watergate, Marlon Brando made an offer that couldn’t be refused, Mikey discovered he likes Life, and one of the best craft fairs in the Midwest was born.

 

That craft fair became formally known as the Sycamore Autumn Craft & Treasure Market, and for half a century, it has provided …

  • area residents thousands of unique gifts ideas just in time for the holidays

  • an excellent addition to the Sycamore Pumpkin Festival

  • a great way to support small, local businesses

  • a wonderful sense of community because the entire event supports Sycamore music programs.

 

Proceeds benefit the Sycamore Music Boosters. The Sycamore Music Boosters, host of the ACTM, will comply with all local, state and national health guidelines regarding large public gatherings in indoor spaces.

Situated during lovely Illinois autumn, just before the holidays and along with the Sycamore Pumpkin Festival, the market draws about 6,000 shoppers to more than 100 booths in an indoor, climate-controlled facility. Craft fair vendors 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 student volunteers, and shoppers enjoy free, on-site parking at SHS. Thanks to golf carts supplied by the Sycamore Park District, shoppers can get free rides to/from vehicles. The ACTM will also offer a variety of foods, beverages and desserts.
