Don’t Miss This Year’s Fall Diddley Craft Show

Fall-DiddleyThe Fall Diddley Craft Show is back and is celebrating its 31st year! This show supports artisans and vendors in the area while also raising money for more than 18 agencies in McHenry County that are associated with the Mental Health Resource League. The Mental Health Resource League is made up of over 100 volunteers who raise money to help mental health agencies supply the services needed in areas such as crisis hotlines, youth programs, abuse, addictions and developmental disabilities. Don’t miss out on the chance to find quality, hand-crafted work while supporting a good cause.

The Fall Diddley Craft Show will take place at the Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere on Saturday, October 8 and Sunday, October 9. At the show, you will be able to find original work from selected vendors who will display outstanding folk art, wood carving, dried floral, pottery, painted and appliquéd clothing, jewelry, fine art and so much more.

Admission to the craft show is only $6 for ages 12 and over, and parking is always free. To learn more about the Mental Health Resource League and the Fall Diddley Craft Show, visit
