MHRL Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Fair Diddley®

Fair Diddley® 2018 is scheduled for Sunday, May 20th, 2018 on the beautiful and historic Woodstock Square in Woodstock, IL. Help us celebrate our 50th Anniversary! There's loads of surprises, contests, and more! We expect over 300 crafters for this event and look forward to seeing you there - helping us celebrate our 50th Fair Diddley® show!

Fall Diddley® 2018 is scheduled for October 13th and 14th, 2018 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 2018 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!
