Women’s FEST 2017 Performers and a New Bigger, Better FEST Pass

Rehoboth Beach will rock April 6-9.

With a return engagement by the multi-talented musician, songwriter and singer Sweet Baby Jai in concert at the Atlantic Sands along with hilarious comic Karen Williams, the Friday and Saturday main stage shows will be HOT! Williams will have you screaming with laughter, and Sweet Baby Jai will command the stage and have everybody up and cheering just like last time. It’s a dynamic double bill.

In addition, British comic Gina Yashere, who has been highlighted aboard Olivia, on the BBC, Last Comic Standing, and in theatres worldwide brings her outrageous observations to Rehoboth for three FEST shows.

On the music front we welcome the legendary Tret Fure back for shows at CAMP Rehoboth along with comic/singer Julie Wheeler and singer/guitarist Regina Sayles.

One exciting addition for this Women's FEST will be a staged reading of Dorothy Allison’s award-winning manuscript Two or Three Things I Know for Sure, performed by the inimitable Stacey Fearheiley, directed by Fay Jacobs.

The New FEST Pass will now include entry and early seating to Karen Williams/Sweet Baby Jai, a Gina Yashere performance, the staged reading, a film and more!

Can you be a Best FEST Friend? And this year, we have a new category for sponsors—a BFF. For a small donation above the cost of two FEST passes, you will be listed in our program, receive the two FEST Passes, plus a raffle ticket (watch for details!) and other perks.

Get ready for an amazing 2017 CAMP Rehoboth Women’s FEST.

What's it All About?

Since its inception as a Women’s Conference and Weekend back in 2001, the CAMP Rehoboth Women’s FEST has become a bona fide spring tradition in Rehoboth Beach. Mix in some sensational entertainment, awesome workshops, and a whole lot of fun, and we’ve got one of the best women’s events on the East Coast—and its name! FEST is short for Fun, Entertainment, Spring, Tradition, and we’ve got all four in abundance! Be sure and watch these pages for the latest information about the next CAMP Rehoboth Women’s FEST.

Fun—You can’t get hundreds of women together and not have fun! From t-dances to  exciting special events (educational and fun!), golf, pickleball, cornhole, great dining, and just time to hang out with old friends and new, Women’s FEST feels like a party.

Entertainment—From the start, organizers of Women’s FEST have been committed to bringing first class entertainment to Rehoboth Beach. Over the years, entertainers like Suzanne Westenhoefer, Chris Williamson, Vickie Shaw, Kate Clinton, Holly Near, Suede, Karen Williams, Sweet Baby J’ai, and Chely Wright have brought music and laughter to sold-out crowds at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center, the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center, and other area venues.

Spring—Bridging the gap between winter and the Rehoboth high summer season, Women’s FEST is CAMP Rehoboth’s premier Springtime event, drawing participants from the entire mid-Atlantic region.

Tradition—After 16 years, Women’s FEST has become a Rehoboth Beach tradition. It continues to happen each year because so many CAMP Rehoboth volunteers are willing to step up and make this amazing four day event possible—and keep it fresh and filled with energy and new ideas. Don’t miss out, this is one tradition that never gets old!
