City of Derby to host booth at Derby Day

DERBY >> Derby Day is an annual community event that brings Derby’s downtown area alive with music, food, and festivities for the entire family. Every year, Elizabeth Street from Main Street to the Derby Green, is crowded with an assortment of vendors offering something for everyone.

Like last year, Mayor Anita Dugatto and city representatives will be hosting a booth at the festival, which is being held on Saturday, June 27, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Derby Day presents a unique opportunity to connect with our community," Dugatto said.

Dugatto believes Derby’s government should be accessible and responsive to the people it serves.  That philosophy is also the motivation behind Dugatto’s weekly Open Door Sessions and the creation of the City’s new website, www.derbyct.gov.

Visitors can drop by the booth on Derby Day to meet city representatives and learn more about planned improvements; city services and amenities, including Citiesense, Derby’s new commercial real estate listing platform; current job openings; volunteer opportunities; and other areas of interest.

“This event gives residents and visitors an opportunity to get acquainted with our city and all that it has to offer - it’s another opportunity to Discover Derby,” Dugatto said.

The booth will also feature child-friendly activities centered on recycling.

To add to the fun, the Derby Inaugural Ball Community Fund will once again be sponsoring an interactive game during the event, suitable for all ages.  Each player successfully completing the game will win a FREE prize.  Stop by the City of Derby booth to participate.

Derby Day is being held, rain or shine, on Saturday, June 27, 2015, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Elizabeth Street in downtown Derby.  For more information about this year’s event, sponsored by the Derby Cultural Commission, check out Derby Cultural Commission’s Facebook page.

This is a press release from the Mayor's Office.
