16th Annual Art of Surfing Festival August 4-6 in Ocean City

The 16th annual Art of Surfing Festival brings local artists and their surf and beach-related works to New Jersey’s Ocean City Music Pier from Thursday, August 4 through Sunday, August 6. The event is free and open to the public, kicking off on August 4 from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., and returning August 5 and 6 each day from noon to 10:00 p.m.  The festival includes live music each night and a Surf Yoga demonstration on Saturday afternoon starting at 4:15 p.m.

“Sixteen years ago, we held the first festival in our then small gallery, and ever since have seen this event grow in popularity,” said Festival Coordinator Steve Miller. “Now, hundreds of people attend in our expanded, climate-controlled location inside the gorgeous, historic Music Pier on Ocean City’s boardwalk. To us, it is an honor to be able to provide festival-goers with unique pieces of art and these artists an opportunity to showcase & sell their beautiful art every year.”

Festival-goers will see a wide array of surf art from veteran and new festival artists alike, including abstract and whimsical paintings, wood carvings, pen drawings, and sea glass jewelry.

“We are always stoked to see the returning artists and festival-goers, and just as happy to welcome the new artists and guests alike,” said Festival Assistant Coordinator Josh Friedrich. “It’s like a family reunion of surf and beach lovers every year.”


The Art of Surfing Festival is New Jersey’s only art festival that is exclusively surf and beach related art. To learn more visit, email, or call us at 856-359-4240.
