The annual Sea Witch Festival is just one of many events held in the Rehoboth, Dewey area during the Fall.

The 2017 summer season is over, but there’s still plenty of things to attract people to area beaches.


Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Carol Everhart says she’s finding that, if weather is good,  people keep coming.


"They have a second home here now, so they're coming down on Thursday night and staying until Sunday, or coming down on Friday and staying until Monday. And that's year-round now," said Everhart.


Everhart says fall events that draw tourists include True Blue Jazz - the Jazz Festival and the annual Sea Witch Festival.


And she says events go right into the winter, highlighted by the annual Christmas tree lighting in November.


"We’re just a very active community,” said Everhart.


You can find a full list of events and dates at the Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce website.
