Fall Diddley® Crafters: Earn a Crafter Voucher


Our 38th Annual Fall Diddley® show was held at the Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere, IL on October 14th and 15th, 2023. The rain did little to dampen those shoppers that showed up to do their HOLIDAY SHOPPING! Although attendance was down due to the inclement weather, vendors and shoppers alike enjoyed themselves as they browsed through the over 200 crafter spaces!

The board of directors is already making plans for it's 39th Annual Fall Diddley® show next year. Mark the date on your calendar now and plan on joining us on October 12th and 13th, 2024 for our 39th Annual Fall Diddley® show!

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!

All general crafter questions s/b directed to our Craft Chair email address.

If you have specific questions about Fall Diddley®, please contact the specific show chairperson by email at or Fall Diddley®.

Please note that questions will be answered much more quickly by email rather than calling the League telephone number. We are a 100% volunteer board and the telephone number is not monitored regularly except during the actual show days!
