Opening Night of the 16th Annual Art of Surfing Festival in Ocean City

Tonight, August 4th is the opening night of The 16th annual Art of Surfing Festival The event is free and open to the public, kicking off tonight from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The festival includes live music each night and tonight music from Aaron Palermo Music starting at 6:00p.m.

“People ask us why we have live music all the time,” said Festival Coordinator Steve Miller. “You can hear the music inside the pier, the artists love it, and it allows people to relax. Then you see the people on the boardwalk start migrating to the portico outside of the Music Pier to watch. Then everybody starts dancing and enjoying themselves.  That’s why we have bands, they make it so much fun .”

Since 9:30 a.m. today, festival staff and artists have been bringing in all the pieces to the festival puzzle.  As mentioned above, the doors open at 5:00 p.m., festival staff and artists look forward to seeing everyone.

“Come on down and say hi!,” said Festival Assistant Coordinator Josh Friedrich. “We love seeing new and old faces. We have some new artists that we think visitors will really enjoy.”

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.
