DARIEN \u2014 Come fall, residents can get jammin\u2019 at the Darien Chamber of Commerce\u2019s first annual music and food festival. The chamber is asking all residents to save Oct. 8 for Chamber Jam, a festival that will replace the organization\u2019s traditional and annual wine tasting. The event will be held at The Gardener\u2019s Center on Post Road. Though initially planned as a town party to celebrate Darien\u2019s bicentennial in 2020, COVID-19 delayed the celebration, the chamber said. \u201cChamber Jam was born out of the idea to better connect the local businesses with the residents of Darien,\u201d the chamber said in a release. The event will feature live music from local bands, beverages and a sampling of food from local restaurants. Tickets begin at $125 per person and will go on sale late August. Attendees must be 21 years old or older. The Spadtastics \u2014 a local Grateful Dead cover band \u2014 is the featured musical guest. Boston-based rock group Busker will be the opening band, playing a set spanning a \u201cwide range of musical influences,\u201d according to the Chamber. Funds raised by the event will benefit the Chamber and its charitable foundation, which provides scholarships to several local students annually. \u201cThe lot will be cleared and the stage will be set for hundreds of people to enjoy live music, eat delicious food and dance the night away,\u201d the chamber said. Tickets can be purchased on the Live Darien CT app at http:\/\/onelink.to\/livedarien or the chamber website at www.darienCTchamber.com. Announcements will be made @darienctchamber on Instagram.
