Darien Soundings

Dear Darien,

Darien’s second annual ROCKtoberfest was on October 2nd at Highland Farm! It was a beautiful day of music, crafts, magic, and more. There were live musical performances, food, and activities for children! People were also able to bring their own picnic lunches. Fun and creative family-friendly events included chalk drawing and mural painting led by DAC Visual Arts instructors. Strolling magician Steve Dane was there with performances by DAC dancers! It was a family-friendly event that was so much fun!

The three bands that performed were SHOT DOWN, Waller and Doug Allen Music. They were fantastic!

This event was brought to you by the Darien Arts Center and Darien Parks and Recreation and sponsored by Marchesi Team Real Estate at Compass. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the DAC and Parks and Recreation and many thanks to all who volunteered!
