Springfest 2018 will take place May 3-6 and will include ticketed performances by Satisfaction: The International Rolling Stones Show, Trace Adkins and Bret Michaels.
2. Spend a getaway weekend in one of the great hotels at off-season rates.
“High season” in Ocean City is usually considered to be between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Memorial Day 2018 is on May 28, so if you take a trip before that date, chances are you’ll still be able to find accommodations at off-season rates. Even during Springfest, hotels and motels tend to be less expensive than they are in the middle of summer.
