Beachfest Volleyball Festival

Head down the shore for our Beachfest volleyball tournament hosted at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center.

This tournament originated in Ocean City, MD with 30 teams and has exploded in popularity over the past four years growing to 224 teams in 2019!! Expanding to Salisbury and Snow Hill to accommodate the popularity, we try and keep our Ocean City roots in mind by allowing each team to play in Ocean City one of the two days.
