Craft & Vendor Show
SATURDAY, OCT 23, 9am-3pm

The Batavia Mothers Club Foundation’s 35th Craft and Vendor Show will take place on Saturday, Oct 23, 2021, at Batavia High School Gym (1201 Main St, Batavia, IL 60510). We are looking forward to seeing you there!
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and for planning the event we are making some changes from our previous events.
Here are some highlights & tips for this year’s show:
  • ALL the delicious baked goods you missed from us last year! Come to the bake sale!
  • Standard 50/50 Raffles with maximum prizes of $500
  • 1 free basket raffle ticket to each patron
  • Maximum 50 booths to allow some space and distancing for our sellers and patrons
  • Masks are required over the nose and mouth for all sellers and patrons except while eating or drinking in the designated eating areas (or for a seller, in their own booth space).
  • Lunch service is NOT provided on site this year, but we are happy to recommend some of our nearby local establishments.
  • Parking and entrances are available on both the Main St. and Wilson St. sides of Batavia High School. If the lot seems full at the Main St. side, try the lot at Wilson St. & Western Ave. Correct HS entrance will have a sign out front- it is NOT the Fine Arts Center entrance.
For more information or questions, please contact us by email calling 630-282-3153.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2019 Batavia Mothers’ Club Craft and Vendor Show a success!  We raised over $16,000 for local charities!!!

The Batavia Mothers’ Club Foundation (BMCF) held its 34th Annual Autumn Craft & Vendor Show on Saturday, October 19,2019, at Batavia High School.

BMCF would like to thank all of the participants in the Community Pumpkin Patch.  Charities from across the Fox Valley carved and/or decorated pumpkins and gourds to display in our Pumpkin Patch. Attendees of the show donated spare change to their favorite pumpkin’s cauldron.  All monies raised through the pumpkin patch went directly to the group that designed the pumpkin. Participating organizations this year were 1st Grade Daisy Girl Scout Troop 1708, 1st Grade Daisy Girl Scout Troop 1544, 7th Grade Cadette Girl Scout Troop 111, Aunt Mary’s Storybook Project, Batavia Activity & Athletic Foundation, Batavia Interfaith Food Pantry, Batavia Women’s Club, Batavia United Way, Chip In, H.C. Storm Elementary, JB Nelson Elementary SAB, Marklund, and Suicide Prevention Services..

Bohr Roofing LLC, and Orange Theory Fitness. Proceeds from the show are distributed to local charities whose work improves the lives of children and families in our community.

Thanks to our 2019 Craft Show Sponsors!

Bunco 2017

 

Our 3rd annual Bunco was held on February 25, 2017, at Batavia Moose Lodge and a radically awesome time was had by all who attended! The theme this year was I love the 80s, Totally Rad Bunco.

This year’s event was almost at max capacity. Attendees enjoyed traveling back to the 80s listening to tunes from Bon Jovi and Cyndi Lauper to El Debarge and Stevie Wonder as well as noshing on refreshments from Enticing Cuisine or snacks like candy cigarettes. Raffles and mini games accompanied the main event, Bunco, as well. Both volunteers and attendees alike donned neon, leg warmers, acid-washed jeans or Flashdance-inspired gear and were met with many laughs. We had a wonderful time this year and we hope that all of our participants did as well!
