Labor Day may mark the end of summer in some places, but Ocean City, Maryland is not one of them. In Ocean City, summer is a state of mind that can’t be located on a calendar or constrained to certain months. In fact, the pursuit of endless summer is a major reason why Ocean City waits until September to hold it’s biggest, most popular festival of the year- Sunfest.
For over 40 years, Sunfest has brought together musicians, local food, and people from all over the region for a 4-day celebration like no other at the beach. Sunfest features a multitude of live music acts, including headlining acts by national recording artists; local restaurants and caterers offering fresh seafood, pit beef, BBQ, fried chicken, funnel cakes, and other local and regional fair food favorites; vendors selling artisan products, handmade knickknacks, souvenirs, jewelry, and more great products; and plenty of games and amusements to keep the kids occupied.
Sunfest is Ocean City’s most popular festival for a reason. If you’ve never experienced Sunfest or made a late season trip to Ocean City, this is the year for you to change that!
