See OCMD Sparkle at Winterfest of Lights


Winterfest of Lights may operate a little differently this year, but you can still expect a magical holiday experience! From November 19 to January 2, you'll find thousands of sparkling holiday lights at Northside Park and get to enjoy the winter wonderland at Santa’s Workshop. Santa will even be available in his sleigh for socially distant photos!

To allow for distancing throughout the event, this year’s Winterfest will be a walking event down a paved path in the park. For those concerned about committing to the full walk, there will be bench rest stops throughout the stroll. If needed, mobility devices and wheelchairs will be available for rental on-site.

Want to bring your furry family along for the festivities? Every Wednesday night, you’re welcome to bring your pet for the holiday fun! Note that pets must remain leashed during the event, and owners are responsible for picking up after them.

Admission is $5 for guests 12 years and older and FREE for children 11 and under. Tickets can be purchased on-site that day or in advance online only. Insider Tip: to avoid lines, we’d recommend getting your tickets online before heading out.


Make your Winterfest experience merry and bright with the added fun of a scavenger hunt through the event! Take this list with you to cross off the items you complete:

After completing your search, be sure to post your experience on Instagram and tag @oceancitymaryland or #ocmd so we can see!

The fun doesn’t end after Christmas! Join us in Northside Park on New Year’s Eve for a celebration. Start the night by strolling through Winterfest and sipping on delicious hot chocolate. At midnight, enjoy a stunning fireworks display over the Bay.
