Events This Weekend in Delaware and Maryland

February 14, 2024

This weekend marks the return of one of the winter's most anticipated events in fabulous Ocean City when the annual Seaside Boat Show takes over the Roland E. Powell Convention Center on Coastal Highway for three fantastic days dedicated to the boating industry.

This event is one of the highlights of the offseason at the Delaware and Maryland beaches and generally draws thousands of guests to the resort in the dead of winter.

The annual show highlights our events calendar for this third week of February as we continue our trek toward spring and the return of warm temperatures and more fun in the sun in the coastal region.

Keep reading below for everything that's happening over the next few days at and near the beaches.

Have a great weekend everyone!
