Another summer has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean that the fun has to stop. When September rolls around, the biggest talk on the town is ‘Sunfest’. What is Sunfest you ask? Well, it’s just one of the largest, longest-running, most enjoyable events to take place any time of the year in Ocean City, Maryland.
Venture around the inlet parking lot under the Sunfest tents and experience an endless amount of one-of-a-kind handmade jewelry, pottery, paintings, and so much more. Everywhere you look there’s something new and something beautiful that can only be found at Sunfest. Outside of the bustling tents you’ll find energetic entertainment from the likes of Chubby Checkers, Eddie Money, and Chris Janson. Some of the concerts do require purchasing tickets, so make sure you check here if you’re interested.
Along with local artists and world-class entertainment, you’ll also get a chance to experience the growing population of local breweries and wineries that call the area ‘home’. Enjoy a sample of some fan-favorite wine, or grab a bottle to take home as a gift to the wine-lovers in your family. After a quick drink you can head on over to the food tent where you’ll have an endless amount of options to choose from. Everything from local crab cakes to fried pickles and everything in between, your favorite fair food can be found here.
One of the best things about Sunfest is that it’s a family-friendly event that is completely free and is certain to offer something for everyone to enjoy. Even if you’re not looking to pick up any of the amazing crafts at Sunfest, you’ll still enjoy the lively atmosphere that can’t be found anywhere else. Not to mention, it comes with one of the best backdrops there is: the award-winning beaches of Ocean City and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.
So stop on by and see what all the fuss is about, we guarantee you won’t regret it. For more information about events, concert times, and ticket prices, check here!

Of course you do. Is there a way to change it? There most ...read more

When living in and around the coast certain things stand out in certain summers and you begin to remember those summers because of those certain things. Say for instance, in 2001 there was a wonderful sandbar off of 28th street. You could swim pretty far out into the Atlantic Ocean and then stand up on the bar and just hang out. Float around, fish from it and when you felt like it, body surf a wave back into the beach. It was pretty great. In 2007 there was a major upwelling of the ...read more
As a kid you want to fly. Then you grow up and, well, you still want to fly. We all want to fly. To defy gravity. To feel that weightlessness of flight and thrust ourselves towards the sky and to belong among the creatures that own it.

This weekend, if you’re in town, make sure to look to the sky, because there will be ...read more
