The City of Lewes boasts many beautiful manicured landscaped parks and beaches for your wedding venue. Hold your wedding on the soft sand along the Lewes beach shoreline from the Rossevelt Inlet to Lewes Beach 1 or 2.  If you are a nautical enthusiast you may prefer our Canalfront Park with a backdrop of boats in our marina. If you prefer a natural garden setting, we have many parks in which you can hold your wedding ceremony under the shade of mature trees or beside our many floral displays.

Wedding permit fees run from $200.00 to $400.00, depending on the venue. Reservations are based on four (4) hours, unless otherwise specified. Music is permitted; however, based on the City’s Noise Ordinance, if you wish to amplify your music you will be required to submit an Outdoor Amplification Request Form and get permission from the Mayor & City Council prior to your event.

Alcohol and smoking are prohibited in all City parks and beaches.
