Wine Fest sees record numbers



A record number of wine enthusiasts enjoyed the transition from summer into fall at the Ocean City inlet this year. After 19 years, Wine on the Beach has achieved vintage status. Like a robust cabernet, it gets better with age.

Our success wouldn’t be possible without the support and cooperation of the Town of Ocean City and its hospitable community. They embraced our concept of stretching the season with a celebration of Delmarva cuisine and the best of regional wines. They have been wonderful partners in helping the festival, and the participating wineries, grow. Through the years these small businesses have benefited from the exposure they receive and the people they meet at the shore.

The Wine Fest family includes those hundreds of volunteers who have given their time and energy to make the event possible. They touch every aspect of our operations, from taking tickets to pouring wine and hefting beer kegs. The festival simply couldn’t function without them.

We like to think Wine on the Beach (and Wine in the Park) have a staple in the Ocean City experience for thousands of residents and visitors. We look forward to being a part of your community for many years to come.
