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.
Thank you for your interest in Ocean City’s Special events. Sunfest is nationally recognized as one of the top arts and crafts shows in the United States.
This is a juried event and booth space is limited. Selection is based on quality and skill of workmanship, unique ideas and an attractive booth display.
