New Castle County
Delaware Antiques Show
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Winterthur’s popular event, at the Chase Center on the Riverfront. More than 50 of the country’s most distinguished antiques dealers present an array of American furniture, paintings, rugs, porcelain, silver, jewelry and decorative arts.
Yuletide at Winterthur
Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library, beautifully decorated for the holidays, offers special events, performances and workshops throughout the season.
This choco-centric event at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino offers all kinds of chocolate, a holiday marketplace and an ice-carving competition.
World Championship Punkin Chunkin
Sure, you can watch the renaissance rednecks of Punkin Chunkin on the Discovery Channel, but it’s more fun in person. It’s the first weekend after Halloween.
Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival
This five-day fest showcases around 100 of the best American and international films—all at the Movies at Midway.
This only-in-Delaware event is held the Thursday after an election. Politicians head to The Circle in Georgetown to bury the hatchet and take a carriage ride. The free roast ox is part of the tradition.
