Oceans Calling Festival Canceled Due to Weather
High Winds and Predicted Tropical Storm Conditions 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 the updated weather forecast of Hurricane Ian. The festival, which would be a first for the resort town, was forced to cancel due to the unsafe 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 promotors since May 2021. Their hard work, and the hard work of our staff, were evident in every detail of the event planning and preparation. Although this is disappointing to all of us, we are already working with C3 Presents to bring Oceans Calling Festival back to Maryland’s Coast next year.”
Hurricane Ian is currently off the coast of South Carolina. Effects of the storm are predicted in our area as early as Friday. The National Weather Service has issued a Hazard Weather Outlook for Maryland and Virginia Beaches.
Residents and visitors are encouraged to stay informed and be prepared for storm conditions. Storm related updates will be posted on the Town of Ocean City’s Social Media sites. For more information or to subscribe for enews, visit www.oceancitymd.gov/enews.
