Festival 2017

Hey all!

 

We are in the process of doing what we always do at this time; go over festivals past and determine the good and the bad.  Over the next month or so we will come up with our game plan for Festival 2017.  We do know that with out great sponsors we cannot keep moving forward progressively.

 

If you or anyone you know are interested in becoming a sponsor of the upcoming festival, please email us!

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.”

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.”
