Director’s Message


My name is Angie Thuli and I have the pleasure of serving as the Director of the Darlington Chamber/Main Street.  My office is located at 447 Main Street and we are open Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 1:00-4:30 pm. Please stop in and get tourist information for Darlington and the surrounding communities.  I look forward to meeting you and telling you about this darling town nestled in the rolling hills of southwest Wisconsin.

Darlington has a historically rich Main Street complete with a boulevard with many properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  These beautiful historic structures are thriving with commerce, and the downtown offers unique shops, restaurants and lodging.

This community of nearly 2,500 is also the county seat of Lafayette County. The historic courthouse, a symbol of pride for the community, features a tiffany glass rotunda, copper and marble fixtures, and a fountain.

Darlington, rich in history, is also a community with all the amenities one would hope for while still maintaining a charming small-town atmosphere.  Darlington offers something for everyone, unique shopping and dining opportunities of our business district, the excitement of our summertime Friday night stock car races, an old-fashioned county fair complete with livestock and a midway, or the opportunity to take in the beautiful scenery via foot, bicycle, canoe, horse, ATV or car.

We host many festivals starting in May with our annual Cinco De Mayo celebration.  June features our famous Canoe Festival.  July brings the Tunes at Twilight concerts in the park series.  December brings the holiday Christmas open houses and a wonderful lighted holiday parade.  A visit from Santa is welcomed by all children young, and young at heart, at the Festival Grounds following the parade.  The evening is brought to a close with the lighting of our floating Christmas trees on the river.

Thank you for visiting our website and I hope you will come and visit us soon.

Very Truly Yours,
