Rehoboth Arts Festival

May 22, 2021

Presented by Rehoboth Art League and the City of Rehoboth Beach

Saturday, May 22, 2021

The Rehoboth Art League and the City of Rehoboth Beach have partnered to produce the City’s arts festival on Saturday, May 22, from 10am-5pm, in the downtown’s picturesque Grove Park, where artists will showcase and sell their work. Known for its annual events that draw discerning local collectors as well as those vacationing from the Baltimore/Washington, DC, area as well as Philadelphia and New York City, the Rehoboth Art League is proud to present this new event as another way to bring creative minds to coastal Delaware. Held just prior to Memorial Day weekend—the unofficial start of summer for this beach town—the event will fill Rehoboth Beach with tents of original, quality artwork, where RAL member artists can sell their work.


RAL member artists will be available in their booths along the pathways of Grove Park to discuss their creative process and have their work available for sale. Sales transactions will be completed with individual artists. For a complete listing of participating artists, click here


The Rehoboth Art League follows local and CDC COVID guidelines for operating. Please be aware that masks are required in downtown Rehoboth Beach, as well as the Rehoboth Art League’s Henlopen Acres campus. The Arts Festival will have one-way traffic flow through Grove Park, and numbers of patrons will be monitored to ensure social distancing throughout the event. Hand sanitizer will be available at the entry and exit point, as well as along the walkway. Our artists have been asked to prioritize contactless payments options for your safety.

There is no event-designated parking for the Rehoboth Beach Arts Festival. Parking meters and permits are not in effect until Friday, May 28th therefore there is no cost for parking. Grove Park is also accessible by water, at Rehoboth Beach’s new public dock, which is adjacent to the park, just behind Rehoboth Beach Museum.
