The Summer (June) will be at our location in the heart of Downtown Antioch! Join us at the intersection of Main Street and Orchard Street. Children's Free Fun includes Face Painting and Balloon Art, plus our Wizards Weekend Day of fun too. Our Fall (October) AC Faire will be located near the Bandshell in downtown Antioch and has a full day of family fun!
Antioch's Summer and Fall Arts and Crafts Faires are not your "run of the mill" craft faires. These Faires have grown in size over the years to more than 65 booths of hand-crafted goods and fun for Summer and Fall. 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 3,000 to 8,000 people browsing through each faire. Admission is free for all ages. Our location at the NE Corner of Main Street (Rte 83) and Orchard Street guarantees plenty of visibility and parking at our new location. Both events will be held at this location in 2018!
All registration for both Antioch's Summer 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). Application links are available above.
Antioch's convenient location, just 40 miles between Chicago, Milwaukee, and Rockford, attracts a large number of craft enthusiasts from a 100 mile radius to browse and shop through the Faires. Antioch's Downtown is a quaint picturesque collection of shops, boutiques and eateries nestled among tree-lined streets. You'll find Downtown Antioch a pleasing alternative to today's mall mentality. Welcoming smiles and personalized customer service is part of the charm Antioch's Downtown businesses are known for.
Parking is easily found throughout the Village of Antioch's Downtown. Street parking is available, but you'll also find plenty of parking behind the shops and more tucked among the different businesses.
