Special Events Returning to OCMD in 2020

It’s been a long couple of months, but in Ocean City, Maryland, we are proud to say that we are ready for you! The COVID-19 pandemic has brought events and gatherings across the globe to a halt. Due to the measures taken by Governor Hogan, local governing officials, and the Maryland Strong: Roadmap to Recovery, Ocean City is ready to return to a bit of normalcy.

The town of Ocean City recently received approval from the Worcester County Health Department. With safety measures such as physical distancing in place, we are pleased to announce the return of special events such as Sundaes in the Park, Beach Dance Parties, ArtX, and Sunset Park Party Nights!

Sundaes in the Park

Resuming June 21st, we are thrilled to welcome back Sundaes in the Park, each Sunday through September 6th, from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Enjoy live music with some sweet ice cream and cold beverages.
