Book Your Stay for the Rehoboth Beach Chocolate Festival 

In the 1990s, the Rehoboth Beach Chocolate Festival was born as a last-minute replacement for the 1991 Centennial. The story begins in 1990, when the Rehoboth Beach Centennial Chairman Patty Derrick had to find a substitute for the Rehoboth Beach Centennial. While her friend Cindy DelCampo was on vacation, she came across an advertisement for another chocolate festival. As a self-professed chocoholic, she let her friend Patty know her idea for a replacement event, and the rest is history. 

Today, the Rehoboth Beach Chocolate Festival is a fantastic chance for local restaurants and bakeries to showcase their skills. The entries are not limited to chocolates and also include pies, cookies, cakes, and a special “other” category. Eight different categories will receive first, second, and third place. 

The proceeds from the annual Rehoboth Beach Chocolate Festival benefit the Harry K Foundation. The Harry K Foundation is a nonprofit organization that works to defeat childhood hunger in Delaware.
