Oceans Calling Festival canceled due to weather

High winds and predicted tropical storm conditions are expected this weekend in Ocean City, Maryland

Ocean City, Maryland – (September 29, 2022): The highly anticipated three-day music festival, Oceans Calling, has been canceled due to updated weather forecasts from Hurricane Ian. The festival, which would be a first for the resort, was forced to cancel due to dangerous weather conditions including high winds, tidal flooding and heavy rain.

“We are extremely disappointed to cancel Oceans Calling Festival,” commented Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan. “We have been working closely with the event promoters since May 2021. Their hard work and the hard work of our staff was evident in every detail of the planning and preparation for the event. While disappointing to all of us, we are already working with C3 Presents to bring Oceans Calling Festival back to the Maryland coast next year.

Hurricane Ian is currently off South Carolina. The effects of the storm are expected in our region as early as Friday. The National Weather Service has released an overview of dangerous weather conditions for beaches in Maryland and Virginia.

Residents and visitors are encouraged to stay informed and prepare for storm conditions. Storm-related updates will be posted on Ocean City‘s social media sites. For more information or to subscribe to enews, visit www.oceancitymd.gov/enews.
