Springfest returns to Ocean City; Here what you need to know

by DrewLUD


OCEAN CITY, Md. — The annual spring tradition in Ocean City of Springfest is set to return next week for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2020 Springfest was canceled by the town last April as the pandemic began to take hold and communities, including Ocean City, shut down to slow the spread of the virus.

The cancellation of Springfest would go on to be one of many events to be canceled or postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, costing the town, businesses and vendors thousands in revenue.

Ocean City officials have been eager to bring back major events and with some changes and pandemic-related guidelines, many in Ocean City hope the event’s return will signal the resumption of a more traditional spring and summer tourism season.

Here’s what you should know about this year’s event:

There will be some COVID guidelines

Springfest has been modified this year to follow all state and local health guidelines as the country continues to fight the COVID-19 virus, according to a press release from the town of Ocean City. This year all guests will be required to wear face masks and social distance at the event.

Guests must also be seated to consume any food or beverages, according to the town of Ocean City.
