Springfest Celebrates 25 Years in 2015

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

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 2015, which takes place from May 7-10, will be even more extravagant than usual as the event celebrates its 25th anniversary as it transforms the Inlet parking lot into a 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 2015 will bring thousands of visitors, hundreds of food and craft vendors, and dozens of musical performances to the Inlet. In addition to favorite local regional acts, the 25th anniversary of Springfest will be headlined by performances from the nation’s most acclaimed Beatles tribute band, Beatlemania Again, country music icon Vince Gill, and 80s rock legends Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, who are celebrating their 35th anniversary tour.

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. [Note: as of this writing the Vince Gill concert is sold out but tickets remain for all other acts.]

To set the mood for this year’s event, we leave you with some images of Springfest past.
