2nd Annual Rocktoberfest

October 2 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

$5 – $25

The Darien Arts Center and Darien Parks and Recreation are hosting the second annual ROCKtoberfest, on October 2 from noon-6pm at Highland Farm, to benefit the DAC.

The event will feature three musical guests, family-friendly activities and food, drink, business, and craft vendors. Musical guests Shotdown, Waller and Doug Allen are performing at the concert. Entrance to the event is $5 per person for walk-ins, parking is $25 per car and preregistration is required to attend. Link to register coming soon.

Fun and creative family-friendly events will include chalk drawing and mural painting led by DAC Visual Arts instructors, strolling magician Steve Dane and performances by DAC dancers.

Shotdown delivers a modern country music experience with an upbeat and energetic playlist and performs cutting edge tunes as well as all the standard country favorites. Waller is composed of James Waller Crafford, Darien native and DHS alum, and his trio. Waller’s music is characterized by raw, expressive vocals and vintage guitar tones that deliver a laid-back mood and nostalgic themes. Doug Allen, born and raised in Darien, is a popular Nashville based singer-songwriter, known for his high energy acoustic shows and rich voice that reminds fans of Zac Brown.

In addition to buying food and drinks from vendors, attendees may pack their own picnics and should bring the means to dispose of trash as the event is ‘carry in, carry out’ to help keep the town’s new recreational space clean. Portable bathroom facilities will be provided.
