“Why would I come to Rehoboth in April?” was always my reply when asked to come to Women’s FEST.
A native Philadelphian, I loved coming to Rehoboth in the summer and did so for many, many years. Sixteen years ago my career took me to Chicago, but now, with many of my long-time friends having made it their retirement place, I started to think it might become mine as well.
I finally said I was coming to Women’s FEST and mentioned it to some of my Midwest friends, who came along. I now know why you go to Rehoboth in April!
I was so impressed with it all. From the moment I stopped at CAMP Rehoboth to pick up credentials until pulling away Sunday to head back to the airport to return to Chicago, I had a GREAT time.
Passing up many invitations to stay with friends, I opted to stay at the host hotel, which was perfect. It was great to park and be in close proximity to every event I attended. The cost was extremely reasonable as the FESTpass deal was so worth it!
The events, from the opening night dance to the Janis Ian concert through Jessica Kirstin and keynote speakers and the art fair and Expo were top notch. Some overlapped activities prohibited attending everything but it was so well planned and organized!
And kudos to the committee for having some pull with the weather Gods as it was a perfect weekend.
I am so impressed with the Rehoboth community with room for all. Spending quality time with some of my oldest besties and meeting their friends made the weekend. The whole FEST reminded me of being on an Olivia trip. It was my first Women’s FEST but I will be back!

I wanted to thank everyone on the CAMP Rehoboth staff and Women’s FEST Committee for the wonderful experience and for inviting me to perform. From start to finish, you all were professional, courteous and friendly, and I can't tell you how much it meant to me! Continued success! It's a wonderful event as evidenced by the yearly growth in attendance and I'm sure it will continue for many years to come!
