Our annual Fall Craft Show has over 300 booths. All crafters who apply must submit photos of their work in progress as well as photos of the finished product.

Our student athletes assist you in moving in on Friday and loading out on Sunday. Crafters are assigned specific, staggered load in times by area to assure a smooth move in with minimal or no waiting.

Applications can be requested at our email address or by sending a SASE to :PO BOX 616, Orland Park, IL 60462.

Over the past few years, about 10% of the exhibitors have been buy/sell or home party demonstrators. This year, there seemed to be a little more than that, but spaced out enough where it still feels like a craft show, not a vendor show or flea market.
Advertising Done for This Event
We advertise in the Chicago Tribune, multiple local papers, cable access channels, church bulletins, community signs, etc. Last year we spent $1200 on advertising. Advertising included MI, Indiana and IL.
