Things To Do In Ocean City Week of January 18th to January 24th

If you are thinking of visiting Ocean City, Maryland this weekend you picked a great time.  Just because it is the off season, it doesn’t mean there is any shortage of things to do in Ocean City.

The East Coast Commercial Fishermen’s & Aquaculture Trade Expo is this weekend.  This is the only commercial fishermen’s expo in the Mid- Atlantic region and it starts Friday, January 18th at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center on 40th Street bayside.  The expo hours are Friday, January 18th from 11am to 6pm and Saturday, January 19th  from 10am to 6pm and Sunday from 10am to 4:30pm.  This year’s expo will include seminars, fishing equipment, fishing gear and more.  If you love to fish, you will want to put this on you list of things to do.

If you are looking for something unique for yourself or as a gift you won’t want to miss the 26th Annual North American Craft Show taking place this weekend at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center.  This show has evolved over the years into the Shore’s largest and highest quality expo.  Here you will find a variety of crafters exhibiting and selling products from mediums such as wood, glass, metal, paper, ceramics and more.  There will be music and food at the event this year as well.  The show runs Saturday, January 19th from 10am to 5pm and Sunday from 10am to 3pm.  Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for students ages 13 to 17 and 12 and under are free. Admission to this event includes entry into the Nautical and Wildlife Art Festival as well.

The 28th Annual Nautical and Wildlife Art Festival is also taking place January 19th and 20th at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center.  This annual event draws more than 6000 visitors each year and features noted painters, sculptors, model ship builders and multi media artists from across the United States.  The show hours are Saturday from 10am to 5pm and Sunday from 10am to 3pm. Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for students ages 13 to 17 and 12 and under are free.  Admission to this event also includes the North American Craft Show.  As an added bonus to visitors of both the Art Festival and the North American Craft Expo, there will be a drawing for a $300 shopping spree to the Donald’s Duck Shop located at 115th Street inside the Gold Coast Mall in Ocean City.  For more information on the Art Festival or Craft Expo call the Donald’s Duck Shop at 410-524-9177.

If you none of these things strike your fancy, pick from the variety of other year round activities Ocean City has to offer such as indoor mini golf at Old Pro Golf, walking the boardwalk, shopping at the Tanger Outlets located on Route 50 in West Ocean City, taking in some Ocean City history at the Ocean City Life Saving Station Museum or even catching a movie at the Sun and Surf Movie Theatre located at 143rd Street and Coastal Highway in Ocean City.

Whatever you decide to do just being at the beach is an event in and of itself.  If you are planning a last minute getaway, book your room online here now.
