Ocean City Springfest

Got spring fever? Take a long-weekend trip to Ocean City from Thursday to May 7 for the town's annual Springfest celebration. Live music and entertainment, arts and crafts, Eastern Shore foods and more are on the bill all four days.

Visitors can listen to free local and regional musical acts such as Soul Crackers, Tuxedo Park Orchestra, Charm City Sound, Jesse Garron's Tribute to Elvis, JR Booker and many others. There will also be paid-admission performances by headline acts the Fabulous Hubcaps (Thursday), the Charlie Daniels Band (Friday) and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (Saturday). Headliners take the stage at 8 each night. More than 180 artists and 30 food-and-drink vendors will be at the festival, all under four big-top tents.

Springfest takes place rain or shine, and runs from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 7 on the Inlet Lot at the south end of the Boardwalk. Parking is limited, so visitors are encouraged to park at the West Ocean City Park and Ride for free and ride the shuttle bus to Springfest for $1. Admission to the festival is free; tickets for musical headliners are $5-$35. Call 410-250-0125 or 410-547-SEAT, or visit ticketmaster.com.
