is being held from Friday through Sunday September 5th - 7th at the Darien
Community Park near the corner of Plainfield and Clarendon Hills Roads in
The Darien Chamber of Commerce runs the Fest with help from several volunteer groups like the Darien Lions. If you'd like more info about Darien Fest, including the band schedule and other festivities, Click Here to visit the Darien Chamber of Commerce website at www.darienchamber.com.
The Darien Lions are prominent at Darien Fest, sporting uniform logo shirts or golden vests. Our Corn Tent is an annual favorite among Darien fest patrons. This year we will also be offering 'Walking Tacos' in addition to water and pop.
So what are Walking Tacos? We take a hand-sized bag of tasty corn chips (Doritos/Fritos brands) slightly crushed, add taco meat and lettuce or other taco ingredients. Its an awesome treat that's perfect for the fest.
All the proceeds from our corn-tent sales are used to fund several community activities including our 4th of July Parade, our Halloween Party, and Easter Egg hunt, to name a few. Funds are also donated to needy local residents, particularly those with hearing or vision handicaps.
Our Club also supports the Chamber by staffing their beer and pop/water tents. At Darien Fest, our members take the opportunity to mix with the community, so come and enjoy some good music, food, and drink. We're always on the lookout for good and caring people to recruit as new members for our Club. We hope to see you there.
