Free concerts at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand

Listening to live music on a warm night is a summertime tradition. So why not catch a free concert at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand while you are here. Over 50 bands perform annually at the open-air venue which is located at the end of Rehoboth Avenue right by the boardwalk. 

The Rehoboth Beach landmark, in its 51st season, has been providing free entertainment since 1963, and the 2014 line-up is no slouch. Exceptional acts range from local favorites to cover and tribute bands to military ensembles and orchestras. With such a diverse offering of styles and genres, you’ll have no trouble quenching your musical thirst.  

The Bandstand also offers other family-friendly entertainment such as movies, variety acts, and other local, regional, and national performances on occasion. 

The Rehoboth Bandstand kicks off its summer concert series on Friday, June 13 with local rock legends Love Seed Mama Jump. Concerts are held every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8:00-9:15 pm. Click here for the complete schedule.

Remembering the Importance of Memorial Day

Memorial Day

Everyone knows that Memorial Day officially kicks off the start of the summer season in Rehoboth Beach, but let us not forget the true reason behind the holiday - to honor the men and women who sacrificed their lives while serving in the United States Armed Forces. 

Originally known as Decoration Day, the holiday began during the Civil War as a way to honor Union soldiers who died serving their country. After World War I, Memorial Day was extended to include all American men and women who died serving their country in any military action or war, and in 1971, Memorial Day became a federal holiday. 

It is customary to fly the U.S. flag at half mast from sunrise until noon, at which time the flag is raised - representing their sacrifice was not in vain, and that we will rise up and continue the fight for liberty and justice for all. 

It's true that most of us just think of Memorial Day as a day off from work and an opportunity for a long weekend of beaching, barbecues, parades, sporting events and concerts. But while you are enjoying fun activities with family and friends this weekend in Rehoboth Beach, don’t forget to take a moment to reflect and remember the more than one million brave people who gave their lives to allow us the freedom we value and cherish.
