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.
