Showdown on the Sound

Join us on May 21, 2022


Join us for the 6th year of Showdown on the Sound to honor Michael Taylor's memory and make a difference in the fight against the opioid epidemic. We are so happy to be back in-person at Weed Beach and can't wait to see everyone together again.

Saturday May 21st, 2022
1:00PM - 5:00PM
Weed Beach
151 Nearwater Lane Darien, CT 06820
Free Admission - Everyone is welcome!


Activities will include: 

  • A "build your own boat" relay race
  • Music by Vasudo: An acoustic performance featuring Rick Mitarotonda and Matt Campbell
  • Silent auction
  • Lawn/beach games, dunk tank, food & more!

By engaging in some of the activities that Mike enjoyed, we honor his memory. By participating in our event, you will help increase awareness and funding for the prevention, treatment, and recovery of this disease. Addiction needs to be battled with empathy and love. Michael was full of both.
