Do you love June as much as we do? The weather is warm, the drinks are cold, the days are long. And in Ocean City, Maryland, the action is non-stop.
Ocean City kicks off its summer season in June with a calendar of events for everyone from families to fair maidens, fishermen to firefighters. See soaring planes, swashbucklers, custom cars, colorful parades and so much more. We’ve picked out some of June’s hottest events to get your to-do list started.
Sand Duels Beach Soccer Challenge June 6-7
Soccer players and fans flock to the beach every year for the biggest sand soccer event in Ocean City. Participating teams in youth and adult divisions are guaranteed three games, and small field sizes mean players get to touch the ball more than in regular games. All the games are on the beach, so this is your chance to score the bicycle kick you’ve always dreamed about!
Mako Mania June 7-9
The shortfin mako shark is the fastest shark in the seas. Reel in a big one during Mako Mania at the Bahia Marina and you could walk away with a big cash prize. Prizes also go out for biggest thresher shark and the biggest bluefish. Boats of all sizes can compete in the tournament, while spectators can hang out at Fish Tales Bar & Grill and enjoy bayside cocktails as catches get weighed.
Tides and Tempests Ocean Renaissance June 13-14
The nautical life comes ashore for the Ocean Renaissance at the Rolland Powell Convention Center. This is an event like no other, blending many fantasy realms into one experience. Catch the Walk the Plank Fashion Show featuring a display of colorful characters from mythology and literature. Find handmade treasures from the Bizarre Bazaar, then shake your scales and tails to the live music at the Tempest Ball.
OC Car & Truck Show/Shoreline Showdown June 13-14
This will get your motor runnin’. Head out on the (Coastal) highway to the Ocean City Convention Center for Saturday’s OC Car & Truck Show. Wind your way through custom cars, trucks and motorcycles of all sorts and meet up with fellow gearheads. Stick around for Sunday’s Shoreline Showdown, which will judge the best trucks, SUVs, low riders, Jeeps and more outside the convention center.
OC Air Show June 13-14
You won’t need to clear the beach when the thunder rolls this weekend. It’s just the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds—the featured act for Saturday and Sunday. They’ll be backed up by demonstrations for the A-10 Thunderbolt II and F-18 Super Hornet. Catch the planes wherever you are on the beach, or buy tickets for the Flight Line Club, Drop Zone Beach or VIP Skybox.
Polished firetrucks and equipment as far as the eye can see. That’s what you’ll find when you make your way down to Baltimore Avenue for this annual procession of heroes. Covering 14 blocks (between 16th and 30th Streets), the parade welcomes fire engines and companies from all over Maryland. It’s one of the most anticipated events during the Maryland State Fireman’s Association Convention, which takes place in Ocean City this year between June 20 and 25.
