While many (but not all!) of the tickets for CAMP Rehoboth’s Women’s FEST have been sold, there are many free ways to enjoy the largest and best event for women in the Mid-Atlantic region. Several of the planned activities are open to the public at no charge, and nearly all of the sporting events are open to observers. Women’s FEST draws thousands of women for four days of sports, dancing, entertainment, activities, and camaraderie, held in a variety of venues in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, from April 27th through April 30th. For the current schedule and ticket availability, check out the FEST Schedule tab and the Event Tickets tab. 


The free Women’s FEST fun begins Thursday, April 27, 7–10 p.m., with the traditional Georgette Krenkel Welcome Dance at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center. This event, which is open to all, provides a chance to mingle, connect, and reconnect with friends old and new.


Free activities continue Friday, April 28th. At 9:45, participants will gather at Bikes to Go, 174 Rehoboth Avenue, for a casual bike ride. This popular activity combines a bit of exercise with fun and friendship. From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., nurses from Beebe Healthcare will provide health screenings at the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center on Baltimore Avenue. Also at the community center, CAMP Rehoboth will host the FEST ART 2023! Art Reception from 3–5 p.m. View the artists’ work on the way to happy hour or another activity.


On Saturday, April 29, the public is invited to the Women’s FEST Expo, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center. This free event features vendors and exhibitors offering items of interest to women. Vendors will be offering a tempting selection of jewelry, photography, t-shirts, scarves, chocolate, books, and artwork. Artists participating include those who use acrylic, watercolor, and resin. Women’s FEST is welcoming several new vendors this year: an artist who paints pet portraits, a massage therapist, a hair product vendor who will be doing demonstrations, and a vendor selling electric bikes. Also present will be nonprofit organizations providing important information and resources for women on topics such as breast cancer, sexual assault, and other important issues.  


On Sunday, April 30, at 9 a.m., participants will meet at CAMP Rehoboth for Broadwalk on the Boardwalk, an event that raises funds for the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition. Participants run or walk to commemorate those lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and educate others. Enter for free and raise money through donations and sponsorships. Proceeds will go toward programs that increase breast cancer awareness, promote the importance of early detection, provide access to mammograms, and provide support and resources to men and women in our local community who are newly diagnosed or facing recurrence of breast cancer.


Audience members are welcome at many of the Women’s FEST sports events. These include an 18-hole golf tournament at The Rookery South golf course, Thursday, April 27, at 9 a.m.; a pickleball doubles tournament at the Dave Marshall Tennis Center on Friday, April 28, at 7:30 a.m.; a 9-hole golf scramble at the American Classic Golf Club on Friday, April 28, at 9 a.m.; and a cornhole doubles tournament on the beach in front of the Atlantic Sands Hotel on Saturday, April 29, at 10 a.m.
