Wings & Wheels Dinner Show

Georgetown is tuning up for a night of great food, special entertainment and poignant tributes at the 10th Annual Wings & Wheels Festival Dinner & Show at 6PM on Friday, October 6, 2017 at the Delaware Coastal Airport, 21553 Rudder Lane in Georgetown.  

This popular Wings & Wheels pre-festival event is reminiscent of the USO shows made popular during WWII which featured hugely famous American celebrities who entertained troops overseas during war time and helped “keep up morale.” Local favorite, Smooth Sound will headline the evening’s entertainment with its 16-piece, 1940s-era jazz and swing band, and dancing is encouraged!

In keeping with 1940s popular culture, the Delmarvelous Dolls (an Andrew Sister type act) will also entertain the audience.  Everything is  held in an airplane hangar decorated with WWII memorabilia and photos, you’ll think you’ve been transported back into time. A full course dinner with light beverages will be provided by Lighthouse Catering. Guests may bring their own wine.  

“The Wings & Wheels Dinner & Show kicks off a whole weekend which highlights World War II and its veterans, and features many of the ‘wings and wheels’ of the same era.”

The Wings & Wheels Dinner & Show has been a consistent sell-out over the years, so reserve your seat today.

Tickets are $50 and on sale here or by calling the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce at 302-856-1544
