A Holiday Tradition

Ocean City, Maryland may be the premier vacation resort on the East Coast during the summer, but each winter it transforms into an award-winning holiday wonderland with the annual Winterfest of Lights. This award-winning annual celebration of the holiday season includes a light display with more than one million one Christmas bulbs. The hundreds of animated displays at Northside Park on 125th Street are the main attraction, but businesses and residents all over town join the fun with mesmerizing lights of their own. Entry to Winterfest at Northside Park costs $5 (kids under 11 are free). Admission includes a trip on the Winterfest Express tram ride. Other attractions in the heated Winterplace Village include the opportunity to relax and sip hot chocolate, browse the Yukon Cornelius gift shop or have your photo taken with Santa.

The 2016 edition of Winterfest will take place from Thursday November 17 – Sunday January 1st.

Sunday to Thursday 5:30pm to 9:30pm  and Friday & Saturday 5:30pm to 10:30pm.

Admission is $5 (age 11 & under are free).
