With the cool temperatures of the Northeast and the beachside vibe, Rehoboth Beach is a totally unique place to celebrate the Christmas season! That said, we have plenty of traditions that’ll fill you with the Christmas spirit!

Tree Lightings: Rehoboth Beach AND Dewey Beach!

Heralding the close of the Thanksgiving season and the official beginning of the Christmas season, a classic tree-lighting ceremony is sure to kindle your holiday spirit! And for people who can’t get enough of Christmas, the Rehoboth area features two such ceremonies to kick off the month-long march to Christmas. Rehoboth Beach will light their tree on Friday, November 24th—this ceremony starts with a traditional sing-along at 6:30, followed by the lighting at 7. The next day you can jaunt to Dewey Beach for their holiday tree lighting at Fifer’s Orchards market! Come watch the city’s illuminate this year’s chosen tree, and feel the warmth of the season fill you as the lights fill the night!

2017 Hometown Christmas Parade

On Tuesday, December 5th, Rehoboth Beach is holding its annual Christmas Parade. A Christmas parade brings out the best in people’s holiday cheer—but with prizes and trophies up for grabs, it brings out the best in their creativity, too! Some come to applaud their favorite float or costumes, some come for the refreshments, and others come simply to see Santa Claus. If any of this sounds good to you, then mark your calendar for Dec. 5 at 6:30 p.m.!

Winter Wonderfest: Christmas Village!

Delaware’s Winter Wonderfest is back, setting up at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal Grounds each weekend from November 17th to New Year’s Eve.
