Summer may be coming to a close – but its not over yet. For those of you who haven’t made it to the beach, your summer may not be complete without that final trip to Rehoboth Beach. 

Before school comes back into session, and before the days become a bit cooler, the last few sun-soaked weeks are begging to be put to good use. 

A few extra days in the nations summer capital, can really top off the season. Bring the kids or hang with friends, this small beach town has fun-filled activities for all. 

Take a group bike ride down the local streets and parks. Hit up the fresh seafood restaurants after a long day at the beach. End your night dancing in the moonlight at the Boardwalk Bandstand. The summer days and summer nights in Rehoboth Beach are endless. 

Don’t let this gorgeous season pass to quickly. Whether you plan your beach vacation, or get in the car today, rest assured that your summer will end in a memorable way.

This year over 125 artists and artisans are coming to Rehoboth to display and sell their fine art and fine crafts at the 42nd Annual Outdoor Art Show! Come rain or shine, this two weekend-long event will be held August 8 & 9 and August 15 & 16 from 10 a.m. to 5 p. m (Saturdays) and 10 a.m. to 4 p. m (Sundays). The show will take place at the Rehoboth Art League’s 3.5-acre historic wooded grounds located in Henlopen Acres. 

Started in 1973, the annual Outdoor show was historically hung on snow fences yielding exceptional artwork and eclectic crafts. To continue the tradition, many artists will also display their work on quaint snow fences as well as set up little white tents for more intimate pieces. 

Aside from being an art show it’s also a fun family summer event featuring great food (prepared by Nage’s Cafe and The Point), music, face-painting, artist demonstrations, and art exhibits in the galleries and gardens. Take a tour of the historic homestead and end your day with refreshing lemonade or a cold one at the Dogfish Head Biergarten.
