August in Ocean City brings the return of the multi-million dollar White Marlin Open, which attracts anglers from across the globe and is the largest billfishing tournament in the world.

As summer winds down, festival season picks up in Ocean City, as Sunfest, Bike Week, the Endless Summer Cruisin’ Car Show and OCtoberfest give plenty of reason for a fall trip to the beach. And when winter finally arrives, Ocean City celebrates with the award-winning Winterfest of Lights extravaganza.
