Easter in Ocean City

Easter in Ocean City

Easter is Sunday, April 1st and there are plenty of egg-cellent things to do in Ocean City! Here are a few great deals and some of our recommendations of things to do in OC during Easter weekend this year:

Street celebrations

Ocean Pines will be celebrating the holiday with an Easter/Spring Celebration and Easter Egg Hunt on March 31 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., where there will be face painting, bounce houses, pony rides, games, arts & crafts, food, goodies, an Easter bonnet parade and egg hunts. See online for the schedule of egg hunts. 

Easter eats 

Enjoy a delicious Easter buffet at the Captain’s Table, located in the Courtyard by Marriott on the boardwalk and 15th Street, on Easter Sunday. The buffet starts at noon. “The Piano Man” Phil Perdue will be providing the music, and reservations are recommended.

Don’t miss the Dunes Manor‘s Easter Buffet, and stick around for their family movie night, crafts, photos with the Easter Bunny, Easter Egg Hunt and chocolate Peep decorating. See Easter Brunch Buffet under ‘Specials‘ for more information. 

Kids events

Stop by the Easter Arts and Crafts Show and Kids Fair at the Ocean City Convention Center sometime during Easter weekend (it’ll be open the Friday and Saturday prior). There will be all kinds of exhibitors and vendors displaying hand-made jewelry, art, lawn decor, toys and more at the Arts and Crafts Show. Then, visit the Kids Fair where there will be activities including egg hunts, coloring tables, dancing, games, contests, clowns and even Beany the Easter Bunny! Admission to the Arts and Crafts Show includes admission to the Kids Fair as well. 

When you finish up at the craft show and fair, head up to Northside Park for the Easter Bunny Fun Shop on Saturday, March 31 to see Peter Cotton Tail hoppin’ down the bunny trail and take part in an egg hunt, arts and crafts, face painting, entertainment, game booths, egg dyeing and refreshments. Kids between the ages of 2 and 10 are bound to have a great time, and tickets are $6 for Ocean City residents and $8 for non-residents.

Sunday service

On the morning of Easter Sunday, a Sunrise Service will be held on North Division Street and the Boardwalk from 6 – 7 a.m., open to all and sponsored by the Ocean City Christian Ministers Association.
