Sunfest Celebrates 45 Years of Sun and Fun!

In Ocean City, Maryland, summer is just a state of mind! Locals and vacationers alike hold on to the very last bits of warm weather and sunshine as long as possible! Which is one of the reasons that the town of OC waits until the end of September to hold the largest event of the summer - Sunfest!

In its 45th year, Sunfest is a staple of OCMD, bringing vendors and visitors from around the country together to celebrate the town's biggest and best festival! This year Sunfest will be held from September 19th through the 22nd, and as always, admission is FREE! 

Sunfest is a legendary combination of live music, great food, and awesome vendors selling artisan products, handmade goodies, jewelry, and more! Bring the kids for hayrides, inflatables on the beach, and fun kids activities!

The food tent at Sunfest is a foodie paradise with over 30 vendors serving up delicious foods all day long! From famous Eastern Shore crab cakes and soups to gyros, Asian cuisine, fried Oreos and many more! Satisfy your taste buds by stopping in! No matter what you’re hungry for there’s always something for everyone!

Head to Sunfest September to enjoy breathtaking ocean views, warm weather, and live entertainment all weekend long! The music starts at 11:30 am on Thursday morning and lasts all weekend until the last act plays at 4:30 pm on Sunday afternoon! All entertainment is FREE with the exception of the headlining performers!
