Delaware Winter Festivals and Events
Delaware’s historic towns and charming nooks come alive during the holiday season, thanks to Yuletide tours, dazzling light displays, stage classics, festive parades and other events that capture the joy and spirit celebrated each year in the First State. Winter festivals and events in Delaware take place from early November through the first week of January and include holiday-themed exhibits at museums like Hagley Museum and Winterthur Museum, Garden, and Library; house tours in historic Lewes and Odessa; and parades in towns both large (Wilmington) and small (Milton). And while Delaware’s beaches are known as the capital of summer fun, the town of Rehoboth offers one of the state’s most iconic symbols of the season when it lights its 30-foot tree.
