Fair Diddley®

Fair Diddley® 2019 again battled the weather! Winds and rain were the talk of the morning hours, but sunshine dominated the afternoon! For those crafters that kept their booths open, it was a profitable day. For those attendees who stuck around after the rain there were some fantastic bargains to be found! We keep praying that one of these years the weather gods will be on our side and favor us with gorgeous sunshine!

Fall Diddley®

Fall Diddley® 2019 is scheduled for October 12th and 13th, 2019 at the Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere, IL. Last year MHRL hosted an 8th tent that increased the number of vendors to 350! Please mark your calendars now for our 2019 show! 

Remember - 100% of net proceeds from Fair and Fall Diddley® are donated to 18 McHenry County agencies that deal with mental health related issues. Additional funding throughout the year is made to other non-profit agencies through our Immediate Grants Fund! Without your attendance and participation, this wouldn't be possible!

If you are interested in donating to the Mental Health Resource League, please visit our Contact Us page - or make a safe and secue donation via our Paypal donation page!.
