Fair and Fall Diddley® Crafters: Earn a Crafter Voucher


It is with deep regret that we are forced to cancel our Fair Diddley® 2022 show. Due to an increase in costs and a decrease in crafter interest - it is no longer profitable for the MHRL to hold the show. This was a hard decision and wasn't reached easily. However after calculating the approximate costs and the related profit, the show just wasn't worth holding. We hope everyone will still join us at our 37th Annual Fall Diddley®show at the Boone County Fairgrounds!

Fall Diddley®

The 2022 Fall Diddley®  show is scheduled for October 8 and 9, 2022! We hope to see you ALL out at the Boone County Fairgrounds in October, 2022!.


100% of net proceeds from Fair and Fall Diddley® are donated to 16 McHenry County agencies that service those with mental health related issues. Additional funding throughout the year is made available through our Immediate Grants Fund! Without your attendance and participation, this wouldn't be possible!
