There’s never a shortage of things to do on the Atlantic Coast, and the Ocean City Sunfest is a premiere event that you won’t want to miss this fall. From September 20-23, you can head to Maryland and experience one of the country’s top-rated arts and crafts shows for yourself!

What to Do at OC Sunfest

Claiming to be “Maryland’s biggest and best festival,” the Ocean City Sunfest boasts 180 crafters, kids’ activities, and hayrides. Local restaurants and vendors will be serving up a scrumptious variety of food including gyros, Asian cuisine, and coastal delicacies.

On Thursday, September 20, at 9:30 a.m., the festivities get underway with a parade down the boardwalk, followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The real fun begins when the live music gets rolling. Each day features multiple artists playing on both indoor and outdoor stages. Admission to Sunfest is free, but you’ll need to purchase a ticket for headlining acts like The Cadillac Three and Daughtry.

If you’re attending Sunfest, you’ll need the perfect place to stay and Sun RV Resorts offers three of the top accommodations in the Ocean City area.
