Participation in the Darien Dash is open to all ages, but requires a vehicle and driver to travel about town, based on answers to riddles. Participants will be limited to the first 25 vehicles to register.

Team members may not exceed the number of seatbelts in vehicles and signed waivers are required for participants under the age of 18. First, second and third place prizes will go to the teams with the most points. In the event of a tie, prizes will be given based on earliest arrival at The Depot.

“After last year’s success, we are really thrilled to offer this exciting activity again to families and the youth of the town. Since it is open to all ages, it’s a great way to include everyone in on the fun,” said Alicia Sillars, Youth Director of the DYC.

Registration forms for the Darien Dash will be available at until March 7, or until the maximum number of 25 registrations are taken. Registration fee is $25 per vehicle. For more information, visit or call 203-656-7388.
