Memorial Day weekend is often identified as the official start of summer, but many people don’t like to wait that long; so each spring, Ocean City, Md welcomes the arrival of warm weather and celebrates the oncoming season with its first of many annual festivals- Springfest. Springfest is a four day extravaganza that takes place at the south end of the Boardwalk and has become an annual favorite among locals and tourists for its wide array of activities and entertainment.
Springfest is known for transforming the Inlet parking lot into full-fledged festival facility, complete with big top tents; indoor and outdoor stages, featuring the best local and national recording acts; fresh, local food; homemade arts, crafts, and artisanal products; and endless activities for the whole family.
Springfest turns 25 in 2015 and is set for one of its most exciting years ever. The event takes place May 7-10 (Mother’s Day weekend) and will bring to Ocean City country legend Vince Gill; the world’s most prominent Beatles cover band- Beatlemania Again; and classic rock icon Pat Benatar.
Springfest is fun for kids, fun for adults, and, with exception of the headlining concerts, is 100% free to attend, so don’t wait around on June, bring the entire family to Springfest and get your summer excitement off to an early start.
