The curtain is rising on the arts in Delaware. Watch and listen as music and performance come alive in front of you. Lose yourself in a painting. Or wrap yourself in incomparable history. A wealth of artistic and cultural things to do in Delaware make it a place to nurture your inner musician, painter or actor.

Delaware venues and festivals welcome the nation’s biggest stars throughout the year. Take in a show in Wilmington at The Queen, The Grand Opera House and the Playhouse on Rodney Square or farther south at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino or the Freeman Stage. You can also plan a visit around great events, including the Opera Delaware Festival, Clifford Brown Jazz Festival and the Firefly Music Festival.

From contemporary to classical, art museums abound to fit your style, from the Delaware Art Museum to the Biggs Museum of Art. And be part of history coming to life at Dover’s Air Mobility Command Museum or the Zwaanendael Museum in Lewes.
