May 2022 Darien Events & Announcements

After a year in development, we are excited to launch Darien's first community mobile app, LIVE DARIEN CT, generously sponsored by the Darien Sport Shop! The App brings the town’s resources together in one place including everything from restaurants, shopping and leisure to local government, recreation, and real estate listings. Darien Dollars, the new town wide gift certificate program, will launch this summer and offer gift deliveries and redemptions via text or email on the app.

The app hosts a “EAT/SHOP/PLAY/WORK-LIVE” format, with key features including our Directory with reputable, local businesses, establishments and organizations and the Darien Community Calendar, a quick access guide to local events, activities, and promotions. Go to PLAY --> Events to be in-the-know! Town amenities, resources, job postings, emergency services, and more are all part of the app.
