Fall Diddley® 2017 is scheduled for October 14th and 15th, 2017 at the Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere, IL. 

Notice: Our Fall Diddley® show will feature additional crafters this year due to overwhelming interest! An 8th tent will be set up offering additional crafters and lots more shopping opportunities! Make sure you put October 14th and 15th on your calendars!

If you didn't know - 100% of net proceeds from Fair and Fall Diddley are donated to 18 McHenry County agencies with additional funding made to other agencies with our Immediate Grants Fund! Without your attendance and participation, this wouldn't be possible!
