For four days during the middle of October, Rehoboth Beach says good-bye to summer and welcomes the fall season with the gala jazz festival offering daily concerts at five venues located throughout the community. Local bars and restaurants join in on the celebration by providing unique dining choices. Diners also enjoy live entertainment with their meals. Locals and visiting jazz fans alike come to hear renditions performed by everyone from new talent to celebrity guests.

For a weekend toward the end of October, locals offer a number of activities geared toward celebrating Halloween. The fun begins with a family movie presented in Grove Park. Guests are also welcome to take a hayride, participate in beach games, compete in the broom tossing contest and go trick-or-treating by the light of lanterns. The event also features a number of events that include a costume parade and a costumed dog parade. Enjoy a historical tour of the community by trolley car and hear the music provided by live bands.

The 2020 edition of the Film Festival will take place in a new, partially virtual, format: Movie fans and film industry professionals alike gather every November for this amazing five-day event that showcases around 100 American and International films deemed to be the best in their genre. The entries consist of everything from full-length features to shorts and documentaries and contain a variety of subject matter. In addition to the chance to see the movies, guests may attend seminars, visit with celebrity guests and attend other special events. A special Children's Cinema Corner provides entertainment for younger film fans.
