Here is a round-up of some of the great events and things to do in Delaware this weekend. While you’re enjoying Delaware, please share travel photos by following VisitDelaware on Instagram and Pinterest and tag your post #Delagram.
City Restaurant Week
Monday, April 4 – Saturday, April 9, 2016
$15 for lunch, $35 for dinner
Wilmington’s fine dining scene is marked by a distinguishing characteristic: It is dominated by owner-operators. In other words, there is not a chain restaurant in the bunch. So each spring, when those restaurateurs team to present City Restaurant Week, they view it as a personal invitation. The result is a menu of 16 restaurants to select from, offering everything from Thai to Chilean to Italian. Better yet, you get to sample the creative cuisine of these fine dining spots with prix-fixe prices of $15 for lunch and $35 for dinner.
7th Annual Lewes Tulip Festival
Thursday, April 7 – Saturday, April 16, 2016
10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Celebrate the beginning of Spring with over 10,000 tulips blooming in downtown Lewes, plus lots of themed events and entertainment happening all weekend!
Camp Rehoboth Women’s Fest
Thursday, April 7 – Sunday, April 10, 2016
Since its inception as a Women’s Conference and Weekend back in 2001, the CAMP Rehoboth Women’s FEST has become a bona fide spring tradition in Rehoboth Beach. Mix in some sensational entertainment, awesome workshops, and a whole lot of fun, and we’ve got one of the best women’s events on the East Coast—and its name!
