About The Festival

When fall approaches and the weather in Rehoboth Beach is cooling down, the music is just starting to heat up!

Established in 1989, our unique group has been orchestrating events bringing national and international Grammy Award winning artists to Coastal Southern Delaware…Our festival is local and our artists are global.

The Delaware Celebration of Jazz, producer of the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival, is a 501[c][3] non-profit corporation with our headquarters for 29 years only in Sussex County, Delaware. Our goal throughout the years has been to raise money to help the Beebe Medical Foundation fund the Tunnell Cancer Center. The Tunnell Cancer Center has over 35,000 visits a year. Each year they have over 2,500 new patients, seeing approximately 150 patients each day. When a patron purchases tickets and donates to our cause, it helps us not only fight the devastating disease of cancer, but also contributes to the ongoing research & the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment for the Tunnell Cancer Center. Our efforts are to help our Sussex County family members and friends beat this disease and live a normal life while battling cancer.
