The annual OC Air Show is a highly anticipated event that draws thousands of visitors to Ocean City.
This year, expect major changes in how you can view the aerial action. Turns out, you don't even have to be in Maryland for a front row seat!
- WHEN: August 15-16, 2020
- WHERE: Over the Ocean City beachfront—see the map below.
- WEBSITE: Ocean City Air Show
- TICKETS: $299 per person for VIP Skybox | $399 per person for the VIP Penthouse
So long, cheap seats!
Social distancing regulations have essentially made the traditional viewing areas impossible, so bystanders are encouraged to watch the show online. If you're lucky enough to have a beachfront hotel room, the best view in town will be from your balcony. The next best thing will be watching it from a boat on the water.
The only ticket tiers for sale this year are the exclusive VIP areas at the oceanfront Quality Inn Boardwalk. VIP seating at both the penthouse level and Skybox level are still available. Click on the links above to see what each tier offers.
For those of you watching from the beach or an oceanfront hotel, the flight path is roughly 10 miles long, as indicated on the map below.
FREE Virtual streaming is new for 2020!
Because of the limited ticket options, the organizers of the air show teamed up with the city to put together a virtual option. All you have to do is click on this link to register and receive additional information about how to access the feed on the day of the show. That's it!
Not only will you see multiple angles of all the action, but you'll also be able to hear professional commentary and interviews with the pilots.
