DARLINGTON – Bring the kids to Market on Darlington Square for a fun art contest on Saturday, Sept. 5. During the Market from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., there will be a free kids’ sidewalk chalk art contest. Children can participate as individuals or in groups, and the chalk will be provided. Categories are ages 12 and younger and ages 13-18. The theme for this year’s contest is MUSIC. Winners will be announced at 12:45 p.m. and will receive a cash prize.

The Market also features vendors selling arts and crafts, produce, plants, and music by Southern Redeemed. In October, the Showdown at the Square Chili Cook-Off returns to wrap up the Market season. Churches, businesses, civic clubs, or individuals can compete for cash and prizes. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Public Square on Main Street in Darlington on the first Saturday of the month, May through October with no event in July due to the holiday.

The open-air monthly market is a partnership between Darlington Downtown Revitalization Association, the City of Darlington, and a dedicated group of volunteers that began in 2011. Vendor spaces are $25 for businesses and individuals with discounts for season passes and non-profit organizations. Booth spaces are free for children and those selling produce or other farm products.
