Greyhounds Reach the Beach® is an event for greyhound and sighthound owners held every Columbus Day weekend in the ocean side communities of Dewey Beach and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
The event celebrates greyhounds, creates awareness of the need for foster and adoptive homes, and raises some funds to support greyhound adoption.
Greyhounds Reach the Beach® has been managed by The Grapehound Wine Tour, Inc., since 2015. It features speakers, vendors, a Blessing of the Hounds and lots of activities throughout the area. Those who register to attend have all their dogs covered for the Dewey Beach “dog license.”
This event brings greyhound owners and their hounds together to celebrate their lives with greyhounds. The event features top speakers from the greyhound and sighthound world, including behaviorists, veterinarians, counselors, adoption professionals, and international breed experts. The event features over fifty vendors in many locations in the Dewey Beach and Rehoboth Beach area along with food, special events, an ice cream social for the hounds, and more.
The organizers of the event suggest that those who plan to attend the event pre-register so that 1) your dogs will be covered by the event’s dog licensing agreement with the Town of Dewey Beach and 2) you will receive a lengthy E-booklet a couple weeks before the event so that you can plan your weekend (or week) for speakers, vendors and activities. The E-booklet lists planned activities, speakers, seminars, vendors who will be at the event, event schedules, and more. You may pre-register at https://www.grtb.org/registration-1.html.
