Each spring, Ocean City, Md welcomes the arrival of warm weather and celebrates the oncoming summer through its first of many seasonal festivals- Springfest. This four day extravaganza has become an annual favorite among locals and tourists for its wide array of activities and entertainment. Springfest 2014, which takes place from May1-4, will be no different as the Inlet parking lot transforms into full-fledged festival facility, complete with big top tents, indoor and outdoor stages, fresh, local food, homemade arts, crafts, and artisanal products, and endless activities for the whole family.
Like every year, Springfest 2014 will bring dozens of musical performances to the Inlet stages. In addition to favorite local acts and regional tribute bands, this year’s event will be headlined by performances from the nation’s most acclaimed oldies show band, The Fabulous Hubcaps, classic rock legend Loverboy, and country music icon Merle Haggard.

Springfest will be open 10am-10pm Thursday- Saturday and 10am-6pm on Sunday. With exception of the headlining musical acts, Springfest entirely free to attend.
Originally, a NASA Antares rocket destined for the International Space Station was scheduled to launch from nearby Wallop’s Island during Springfest weekend. That launch has since been postponed with a target date now of June 9. Please visit wallopsisland.org for details about the launch, including special viewing parties in Ocean City.
