General Rules and Requirement for Our Audience

While attending bandstand performances, we ask that the audience adhere to a few general rules for the safety of the audience and performers, as well as the enjoyment of all persons involved in the production:

Please keep children (and adults) off the bandstand steps and stage before, during, and after performances.
This includes railings, ramps, steps, and stairs.

Please do not reserve spaces for family and friends that are not currently present at the bandstand.
We realize that there are some popular performances, however the bandstand is a public place and does not have reserved seating. Please only hold seats for those in your party that have TEMPORARILY removed themsevles to utilize the restrooms, vendors, etc.

Please do not smoke while seated in the main audience sections (white benches) for the comfort of those around you.
The City of Rehoboth Beach smoking ban went into effect on May 15, 2014. The smoking ban includes the beach (except for up to 20 areas on the beach designated as smoking permitted areas which will be clearly marked), the Boardwalk, the Bandstand Plaza, City parks, and the street ends adjoining the Boardwalk. Signage is in place to delineate the designated smoking areas. For more information regarding this ordinance, please visit the City of Rehoboth website here:

Please do not stand directly in front of other audience members while a performance is in session.
This includes photos, videos, and other media materials.

Please watch your step.
Please be aware that often there are electrical cords and other peripherals utilized during the performances that may be within your walking or sitting areas. Please do not step, stand, or pull on any cord that may be around you. If there is a need to move the cord(s) for your own safety and enjoyment of the show, please alert any personnel and it may be moved for you, if available.

Please do not bring alcoholic beverages to the bandstand.

Please keep cell phone use to a minimum during the performances.
It is a good idea to keep your cell phone(s) on vibrate or silent mode. If you need to make or receive a phone call, please remove yourself from the general audience area (white benches) and utilize your phone in the areas to the rear or sides of the seated area.
