Fall Diddley 2023 Scheduled for October 14th and 15th, 2023 at the Boone County Fairgrounds!

MHRL has a reputation for featuring hand-crafted, quality, original work at our Fall Diddley® show. We are able to achieve this by requiring each of our vendors to be placed at the event through a juried application process. Through this process, we have been able to provide you with an outstanding display of folk art, wood carving, dried florals, pottery, painted and appliqued clothing, jewelry, fine art and much, much more.

Please come back to our website for updates regarding our 2023 craft shows!

Crafter placements in both Fair and Fall Diddley® events are on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you are a crafter and would like to stay in the same location as you've had in the past, you MUST submit your applications in a timely manner. We cannot guarantee your same location if your applications are not mailed by the due dates.

All proceeds from both shows benefit McHenry County agencies concerned with mental health services. In January, 2022 MHRL distributed $130,000.00 with the proceeds from our Fall Diddley® craft show!.16 non-profit agencies in McHenry County received these funds. We are proud to support these agencies that further the mental health industry by providing much needed mental health related services.


Please Remember! The Mental Health Resource League is a 100% VOLUNTEER agency that distributes 100% of it's NET PROCEEDS to these 16 agencies! Help us help them!
