Ocean City is gearing up for an unforgettable Fourth of July celebration this year. With two locations—downtown at N. Division St. Beach and uptown at Northside Park, 125th St.—the town promises a night filled with DJ music, performances from US Army Band, and a breathtaking fireworks display. Mark your calendars, grab your beach chairs or blankets, and get in the patriotic spirit.

Downtown Festivities:
The heart of the Fourth of July celebration in Ocean City will be at N. Division St. Beach. The evening kicks off at 6:30 PM with music and announcements by KuttProductions. At 7:00 PM, the U.S. Army Band Downrange takes the stage at Caroline Street.

As the night continues, DJ Kutt will take over the stage, delivering fun dance music and patriotic tunes to keep the energy high. Finally, at 9:30 PM, the sky will be filled with a mesmerizing fireworks display. Make sure to arrive early to secure your spot and witness this breathtaking spectacle.

Uptown Extravaganza:
If you prefer to celebrate a little further uptown, Northside Park on 125th St. also offers an exciting lineup of events. The evening starts with free music, setting the stage for a great night. As the sun sets, around 9:30 pm, there will be a spectacular fireworks display, and just like the downtown location, bring your beach chair or blanket and arrive early to ensure the best viewing spot for the fireworks display.

Ocean City’s Fourth of July celebration is one of the highlights of the summer season, offering everyone an opportunity to come together and commemorate our nation’s independence. With two great locations, downtown at N. Division St. Beach and uptown at Northside Park, Ocean City is pulling out all the stops to make this year’s celebration one to remember. So, gather your friends and family, pack your beach chairs or blankets, and head to Ocean City for an unforgettable Fourth of July experience.
