General Rules and Guidelines for Our Audience

To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all audience members and performers during bandstand performances, we kindly request that everyone adheres to the following rules:

Please do not climb or stand on any part of the bandstand.
This includes steps, railings, ramps, and stairs, before, during, and after performances.

Please avoid reserving seats early or for absent family or friends.
We kindly ask attendees to reserve seats only for members of their group who are temporarily absent for short-term activities such as restroom breaks or food purchases. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that leaving personal items unattended is done at your own risk, and neither the City of Rehoboth nor its staff is responsible for any lost items. We appreciate your cooperation in following this policy to ensure a pleasant experience for everyone.

Signage has been installed around the bandstand area to remind everyone of these requests. For popular shows, we recommend bringing your own chairs as benches can fill up quickly. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in making everyone feel welcome and comfortable in our performance area.

Please do not smoke (or vape) while seated.
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 be mindful of other audience members.
While taking photos, videos, or other media during the performance, avoid standing directly in front of other audience members, and please do not obstruct their view.

Please watch your step during the performance.
There may be electrical cords and other peripherals in the area. Refrain from stepping, standing, or pulling on any cords, and alert personnel if you need assistance moving them.

Please do not bring alcoholic beverages to the bandstand.

Please limit your cell phone use during the performance.
If necessary, please keep your phone on vibrate or silent mode and move to the areas at the rear or sides of the seated area to make or receive phone calls.
