On Thursday, August 20th, the Revival House, Beebe Foundation and Hudson Fields will take a bite out of summer boredom with the launch of “Jawsfest”, a benefit for Beebe Hospital featuring music, food, and fun as well as a very famous shark. 

Staring at 6 p.m. at Hudson Fields, “Jawsfest” will welcome families with various food trucks, a Jaws-themed beer release from Revelation Brewing, live music, local vendors and featuring a screening of director Steven Speilberg’s milestone summer film “Jaws” at dusk. The event is free and open to the public, but donations are suggested, with proceeds going to Beebe Hospital’s frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This is a FREE event! But there will be limited seating so get there when the doors open or you'll miss the boat... get it.

Revival House is working with Beebe Medical Foundation and Hudson Fields in order to adhere to all state-mandated social distancing measures and precautions, and participants will be required to keep the proper six-foot distance from others when on the field to view the film. All attending will be required to wear protective face covering while on the premises. “We are doing this as a fundraiser for those who continue to put themselves on the line during this pandemic, so we want to adhere to all the requirements to help flatten the curve, but let everyone still have a fun time with their families,” said Revival House’s Rob Rector.


Prior to the film, “Jawsfest” will provide a number of food trucks for visitors, adult beverages and kids’ activities.  Live music will also be provided prior to the film. When the sun sets, the main feature will begin, broadcast on a 52-foot screen and families can view from their own blankets, beach towels, or low-back beach chairs...all far from the ocean’s edge.


All donations raised at the event will go to Beebe Hospital, who has been tirelessly working to help keep locals safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.  


All events are subject to change with regard to state COVID-19 regulations, so check back for additional updates and information.

t's finally here folks! Jawsfest! We wanted to give you a little heads up on what to expect when you arrive at Hudson Fields. Rob and Bruce will give you the run down.

Hang out with us as we catch up with Leah Beach and talk DAC and Jawsfest

We had a chance to hang out at Frantic Frets Music Store & Antiques Shop Milton, Delaware with Mary and Al who are going to be one of our coolest vendros at Jawsfest: Beebe's Gonna Need A Bigger Boat. And as a bonus, Al who is also our second musical act, is premeiring his new song "Last Stitch" right on this video! It's about a brutal shark attack so it pretty on-theme for this event. Enjoy

We couldn't be more excited that Revelation Craft Brewing Companyis creating a beer specifically for Jawsfest: Beebe's Gonna Need A Bigger Boat called Quint's Revenge. Quint's Revenge is a smooth sour conditioned on blackberries, strawberries and blood oranges. Having been lucky enough to have had an early taste, I can honelty say that it is one of the best sour beers I've ever had. 

We're teaming up with Ogre's Grove to bring you the Blue Line Challege. A comic book themed art challenge for all our local artists with proceeds going to Beebe Healthcare. For more details watch the video or go to the site:…/…

THE FILMS - Starting at dusk

Featured local short

Sleep is for the Week


film by Max Remmler

A student insomniac struggles to keep up with the ongoing pressure of high school.


Celebrating its 45th year, “Jaws” has become the model for the summer smash, becoming the first film to ever earn $100 million in its initial theatrical release and coining the term “blockbuster,” as crowds would line up around city blocks in order to get tickets to the film.


“It’s certainly my favorite film,” said Rob Waters, one of the founders of Revival House. “And seeing it in as big a format as possible is the best way to experience it.”

THE BANDS - Starting at 6:30pm

Speed Limit 18

Prior to the film, Delaware’s own Speed Limit 18 will take the stage to provide a raucous start to the evening’s festivities. Founded in 2016, the trio consists of long-time pals Oliver Sachs, Alex Boswell and Zach Yenovkian. The group all share writing responsibilities while rocking out on guitar, piano, sax, and drums to perform their all-original numbers, which are inspired by such irreverent rockers such as 21 Pilots and AJR. 


The band, who all attended Rehoboth Elementary School together, now attend Sussex Academy. They released their first album, “Stooped,” in January of 2019 and have been touring throughout the area when they are not too occupied with their schoolwork. 

Al Frantic

Al Frantic is a well-seasoned musician and has made quite a splash here in Delaware since moving to the area in 2018. Performing as a solo, or with his 3-piece band, Al has become a local favorite. With music ranging from the Beatles to Zeppelin and everything in between.
