OCMD Activities to Do in the Off-Season

There are so many reasons to visit OCMD in the off-season, and we’ve put together a list of some of our favorites.

Fun Events

While Ocean City is known for its iconic summer events, the fall season brings its own list of exciting festivities. SunFest, an annual festival in OC, is scheduled for October 19th – 22nd, with over 200 artists and craftsmen in attendance, local bites from surrounding restaurants, and music all day long—you won’t want to miss out on the action! Ocean’s Calling is also on Ocean City’s calendar of events. This 3-day music festival will be from September 29th – October 1st, featuring top names in music, including John Mayer, The Lumineers, and more. 

The fun doesn’t have to stop after a day at one of these events! Be sure to stop by Ropewalk Ocean City to recharge and enjoy a delicious meal with a view.

Beach Days

Contrary to what you may expect, fall in Ocean City brings some of the best weather of the year. The hot summer sun is gone, and the milder temperatures roll in, making it the ideal time for pleasant beach days. Whether you’re looking to soak up some sun, take a leisurely walk along the coastline, or simply enjoy the sound of the waves, Ocean City offers a relaxing and crowd-free beach experience in the off-season!

Bonfire Nights

As the sun sets and the temperature starts to drop, there’s no better way to spend the evening than with a bonfire on the beach. Grab your friends, some cozy blankets, and your favorite Ropewalk carry-out meal for a perfect night on the beach. And if you prefer not to purchase a bonfire permit, join us at our very own fire pit right here at Ropewalk!

Make the most of your trip to Ocean City this fall by visiting Ropewalk, where you can enjoy off-season specials and shorter wait times while also enjoying everything OC has to offer!
