The Committee’s mission is to identify and promote the many events, activities and attractions in Western Sussex County, Delaware where we serve – including Laurel, Bethel, Blades, Seaford, Woodland, Bridgeville and Greenwood, which would attract more visitors and overnight stays in our local hotels, motels, inns and marina. The group collaborates with City and towns, local organizations and Chamber members in the planning and coordination of local events – i.e., Seaford Christmas Parade, Live for Chocolate, Broad Creek Bike & Brew, Apple Scrapple, Eastern Shore AFRAM Festival and Nanticoke Riverfest. They coordinate with local tourism partners – hotels, restaurants, attractions to educate and inform of upcoming community events and festivals to develop strategies for “More heads in Beds!”, including holding an annual Western Sussex Partners workshop and information meeting. Annually they work with Southern Delaware Tourism, the local visitors’ bureau to create options for hosting travel writers in the area. The committee meets the first Thursday of the month at the Chamber office.
