Event Postponed Until 2022

After the postponement of the 2020 Southern Illinois Made Expo, we were excited to make the 2021 event bigger and better than ever. However, due to the resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic, we sadly regret to inform you that we will be postponing the event until 2022.


The event is always open to the general public – giving everyone the opportunity to experience firsthand the quality of unique products made, created and found here in Southern Illinois. We've welcomed hundreds of visitors to this event in past years. Given the pandemic, we were forced to make a very difficult decision. 


To ensure that we can accommodate everyone without risk and while following social distancing guidelines, we must postpone the event to 2022.


The event will be July 23 and 24 of 2022. 

If you are interested in registering for the 2022 Southern Illinois Made Expo, please contact info@simade.org for more information.


We hope that you will still make an effort to promote your local Southern Illinois Business in the meantime.
