Find out more about some of the most lively things to do in Rehoboth Beach below!

Great Delaware Kite Festival

Held on Good Friday each year in Cape Henlopen State Park, the Great Delaware Kite Festival originated in 1969 when Governor Russell Peterson was challenged to a kite-flying duel by a maharaja from India. His stand-in, Lieutenant Governor Gene Bookhammer, won the competition for him and the tradition continues to this day. At this family-friendly spring event, you can enjoy kite flying, Easter-themed activities such as egg hunts and tosses, and mouthwatering food from local vendors.

Downtown Rehoboth Beach July 4th Celebration

On Independence Day weekend of every year, downtown Rehoboth Beach holds its patriotic celebrations, lighting off fireworks in Delaware Bay on the night of Independence Day. Free live entertainment is given on the boardwalk bandstand leading up to the launching of the fireworks any time after 8:00pm.

Sand Castle Contest

Wrapping up summer in early September is the Sand Castle Contest, an open competition where Rehoboth Beach becomes the stage for sand sculpture enthusiasts to shine. If you want to learn how to sand sculpt beforehand, a free lesson and demonstration is normally given the night before on the boardwalk.

Sea Witch Halloween & Fiddler’s Festival

Taking place on the last weekend of October each year, Rehoboth Beach celebrates fall with live music performances from banjo players and fiddlers, a costume parade, a broom-tossing contest, and the Chicken Wing Championship. There’s even a scavenger hunt and trick-or-treating downtown!

Annual Cocoa Crawl

Each November, Rehoboth Beach hosts the Annual Cocoa Crawl, where shops across the city open up their doors and provide discounts on hot cocoa, drinks, desserts, and fall treats. You can also enjoy a drawing and live music while you tour the city and try out some of the area’s best restaurants before heading there for dinner.
