Annual Easter Egg Hunt: Friday, April 7 at 10 am – SOLD OUT

Gather your Easter baskets and join us for an easter egg hunt on the front lawn of the DCA.  This longstanding community tradition is an egg-cellent holiday outing!

Please come early, as the egg hunt starts at 10:00am sharp and only takes a few minutes. A special appearance by the easter bunny adds to the fun.

Price: $35/car

Due to safety and parking constraints, advance registration and prepayment is required, and limited to the first 100 registrants/vehicles. Families are encouraged to carpool. The Darien Police will direct traffic and parking.

In the event of inclement weather, a cancellation of the egg hunt will be announced on our DCA website,

Annual Halloween Parade 2021
Thank You to the Darien Police and Our Local Merchants for Supporting the DCA Halloween Parade!

The DCA’s Halloween Parade is a 27-year town tradition for our youngest residents. This year, 125 children enjoyed trick-or-treating with their parents/caregivers on a stretch of the Post Road. This would not have been possible without the Darien Police, who direct traffic, and the enthusiastic support of numerous businesses, who hand out goodies to the children along the way.

The DCA would like to thank the Darien Police and the following merchants for their trick-or-treating participation: Aquarius, Barvida, Big Shots, Browne & Co., Coldwell Banker Realty, Darien Barber Shop, Darien Station Variety, Darien Upholstery, Eco Chic Salon, Good Goods, Huntington Learning Center, Jade Nail and Spa, Jem Lee Cleaners, Kelly Interiors, Kumon Learning Center and Mandarine Home.
