SPECIAL FAMILY, YOUTH & COMMUNITY EVENTS

 

  • ANNUAL FAMILY CONCERT SERIES   --    Typically every Wednesday in June @ 6:30 p.m. @ Weed Beach, this is a terrific way to enjoy family-friendly entertainment at one of Darien's greatest resources. (There is a per person/vehicle cost per concert , payable at the beach entrance...beach stickers are not required to attend these events.) 
  • COMMUNITY MOVIE @ WEED BEACH  Co-sponsored by the Darien Parks & Recreation and the Darien Youth Commission, movies at the beach take place the last Friday in June and the Friday of Labor Day weekend.  Start-time at dusk (varies based on time of year). ALWAYS free admission
  • ANNUAL FAMILY DAY DINNER @ THE DARIEN YMCA Annual dinner sponsored by the Darien YMCA, the Thriving Youth Task Force, Darien's prevention council (and a subcommittee of the Community Fund of Darien) & the Darien Youth Commission, this free, fun-filled family event promotes the concept that families who regularly dine together minimize future risk factors. Modeled after CASA's Family Day, this is a great opportunity for families to engage with one another in conversation, fun and relaxation. Typically takes place 3rd or 4th Friday in September.

  • Darien's Thriving Youth Task Force -- Involving all sectors of the community, Thriving Youth is Darien’s coalition of concerned youth, community and civic organizations, businesses and individuals working together to provide meaningful relationships, experiences, skills and opportunities to benefit all our children. (For additional information on Darien's prevention council, visit the Community Fund of Darien's Thriving Youth Task Force website.)
