Introducing Rehoboth Beach Main Street, Inc.... In more than 1700 downtowns across the nation, public/private partnerships are protecting the future of small towns and their commercial districts with a four point approach. Rehoboth Beach Main Street, Inc (RBMS) is a membership organization of merchants, business owners, residents and visitors who love Downtown Rehoboth and want to keep it a real hometown and a thriving resort community. RBMS is an architectural incentive program, a tourism organization, a fundraising event producer and a marketing and communication organization for Downtown Rehoboth Beach.
RBMS was formed in cooperation with the National Trust for Historic Preservation and The Main Street Center, along with Delaware Main Street which coordinates the state programs. Operating since 1996, RBMS is a Certified Main Street Program. Only about one-third of the almost 2000 Main Street organizations around the country receive that accreditation.
RBMS works to encourage attractive storefronts, unique businesses, distinctive signage and lighting. RBMS also produces fundraising events to bring visitors downtown, including Mardi Gras in February, the Rehoboth Chocolate Festival in March, a Restaurant Week in June, Fireworks in July (which draws 80-100,000 people), and the month-long Seaside Holidays event in December. RBMS also runs programs like Downtown Gift Certificates, Discount Coupon Books and print, cable and billboard advertising to encourage downtown shopping, dining and hotel occupancy.
RBMS is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, governed by a Board of Directors with day-to-day operations overseen by an Executive Director, staff, and volunteer committees and workers. RBMS is taking action to keep Downtown Rehoboth Beach thriving! Learn how you can help Downtown Rehoboth Beach stay strong!
