Best Accommodations for Ocean City Festivals

Ocean City, Maryland’s sublime seaside setting and climate—and its vibrant culture—shake out to a calendar chockfull of fun happenings. For experiencing any and all of the area’s stacked lineup of festivals, there’s no better place to stay than Ocean City Ashore Resort & Beach Club, set right on this bustling and beautiful beachfront!

Here’s a quick look at just a few of the annual happenings in OCMD, each a prime excuse to come join us for upscale hospitality along the surfside.

OC Bikefest

Did you know that Ocean City hosts the biggest motorcycle rally on the East Coast? Well, now you do! This year’s running of OC Bikefest plays out September 14th through the 18th, and besides all of those hogs, you’ll enjoy high-quality tune-age from such performers as Jasmine Caine, Travis Tritt, Zac Brown Band, and Godsmack.

Endless Summer Cruisin’ Car Show

From two wheels to four wheels! Goggle at amazing rides and hobnob with vendors at the 2022 edition of the Endless Summer Cruisin’ Car Show, underway October 6th through the 9th. The main locations are the Ocean City Convention Center parking lot and Inlet parking lot, and the chromed-out event coincides with the Hot Rod & Custom Car Show at the Convention Center (October 6th through October 8th). Highlights include multiple Boardwalk Parades as well as the Grand Finale Awards.


One of the defining annual events in OCMD, Sunfest will be marking its (mighty impressive) 47th year this October: the 20th through the 23rd, to be exact. Expect loads of local vendors doling out exceptional food—from barbecue and Asian dishes to funnel cakes—as well as refreshing beer and wine. Arts and crafts will help anchor proceedings, as will live music—free except for the 8 PM headliner acts.

Shorecraft Beer Fest’s OCtoberfest

On October 29th, Sunset Park turns into a celebration of hops, malt, and suds—plus general conviviality and merriment—for Shorecraft Beer Fest’s OCtoberfest. (Get it?) Alongside local craft beer (and non-alcoholic beverages as well), enjoy live tunes and roughly half-hour cruises via the OC Bay Hopper—complete, naturally, with an onboard brew.
