Delavan Daze set for August 11th and 12th!

Historical Society

The event will feature “best of the season” sales, music, street performers, chalk walk, arts, crafts, food and a 175th birthday party for Delavan.

Delavan merchants will mark down their merchandise to the lowest possible prices. Participating businesses include Brick Street Market, Bibliomaniacs, Delavan Gold and Diamond Exchange, Remember When, Scene II, Bradley’s Department Store, Hair Techniques, Pac Ratz and Lubick Gallery on South Third Street.

Delavan Daze is a new event created by the Downtown Business Association in lieu of Maxwell Street Days.

The DBA aims to recreate the feel of an art mecca as it was at the turn of the century when Delavan, as an art colony, attracted students from the Chicago Art Institute. Over the past three years, the DBA has had public art displays throughout the summer. This year, birdbaths are the featured art object on display and for sale throughout the downtown. Proceeds from the sale of the birdbaths help the Delavan-Darien High School Art Club and beautify downtown Delavan.
