Where to Find Santa in Ocean City, MD

Where to Find Santa in Ocean City, MD

Santa! I know him! And you can too after these holiday events where he will be making an appearance. You don’t want to miss your chance to get a picture—maybe an ‘elfie—with Mr. Claus himself and his friends while they’re in town.

Explore OC has scoped out his itinerary and we know where to find Santa in Ocean City this holiday season. You’re just in the (Saint) Nick of time to catch him! Grab the family and take a sleigh ride downtown to have a jolly good time.

Winterfest of Lights

Check your calen-deer for the best time to visit the North Pole of Ocean City, aka Northside Park, Wednesday through Sunday during the month of December. One of the most popular holiday events is back with magical light displays all around the expanded walking tour. Bring the whole family to sip hot chocolate while you explore and take pictures with Santa.

Pizza Party With Santa

If you enjoyed Winterfest of Lights but didn’t get enough time with the big man, this pizza party is for you! Children are invited to Santa’s pizza party at Northside Park on Wednesday, December 8th. Yule be sorry if you miss out!

Ropewalk Breakfast With Santa

Reserve your spot to brunch with Santa on December 11 & 12 from 10 AM to 2 PM. Enjoy an exclusive holiday brunch menu and Christmas bulb decorating with the jolliest of guests—Santa himself!

Believe in Santa Breakfast

Breakfast must be Santa’s favorite meal because we’ve got another hot breakfast provided by the Residence Inn Marriott in OCMD! Join at 8, 9, 10, or 11 AM on December 11th for crafts, photos with Santa, baked goods, and a raffle. All proceeds will be donated to Believe In Tomorrow Children's Foundation.

Cookies With Santa at the Zoo

Santa has to bring his reindeer to say hi to their friends at the Salisbury Zoo! Meet him there for an afternoon of cookies, crafts, and furry friends. Register today for December 18th at 12 PM or 2 PM. 

Ice Skate With the Grinch

Santa let us know that he’d have a few friends in town as well! The Grinch will be hanging out at the Carousel Resort Hotel ice rink on December 11th from 5 PM to 7 PM to skate with all the Whos that come by. His heart will grow 3 SIZES that day if you ask him for a picture!

Buxy’s Customer Appreciation Party

On Friday, December 10th at 7 PM, Santa will be coming to Buxy’s Salty Dog Saloon to join the Customer Appreciation Party. Everyone is welcome to enjoy Happy Hour specials and live music!

Frosty at Alley Oops

Another old pal of Santa’s, Frosty the Snowman, will be chillin’ at the Alley Oops Midtown and Uptown locations on December 11, 12, 18, and 19. Take an icy souvenir picture with Frosty to be the coolest kid around!

Free Polar Express Showing

Santa will be busy back at the North Pole on Christmas Eve morning, and even though you won’t be with Santa in person, you can still experience one of his best cinematic appearances of all time! Join us for a free showing of the Polar Express at Flagship Cinema in Ocean City starting at 10 AM.
