Classic cars inch down the Boardwalk during last year’s Endless Summer Cruisin’ in October. Ocean City Council members approved special event requests and other details for this year’s fall cruisin’ event and Corvette Weekend set for next month.
Two longtime car shows are officially on the books for the resort’s shoulder season.
On Tuesday, council members approved private event requests and other details for Endless Summer Cruisin’ and Corvette Weekend.
For years, Cruisin’ events have bookended the summer season in both spring and fall.
The fall classic car show is set for Oct. 6-9 this year, with tentative future events on Oct. 5-8 in 2023 and Oct. 10-13 in 2024.
Along with the date holds, council members approved a private event request, as well as a memorandum of understanding with the organizer, Special Events Productions.
According to the staff report, the show will feature music, automotive vendors and exhibits from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. all four days at the inlet lot downtown.
Boardwalk parades are also set from 7-10 a.m. Thursday through Saturday, with a Sunday rain date, from 27th Street to the inlet lot.
Neon and pedal car shows are planned as well from 6-10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday on the south end of the inlet lot.
Other operations are set to take place at the Ocean City convention center on 40th Street, with details included in a separate agreement.
The organizer will pay the town $1,175 in private event fees, according to the staff report.
The city will also receive 10 percent of the participant registration sales, inlet lot ticket sales and inlet lot vendor space fees.
In 2021, the revenue totaled more than $17,000.
According to the agreement, the city will pay for the trailer permits for the event, which is estimated at $1.30 each for 500, totaling $650.
The organizer will then sell the permits for $50 a piece, with all of the revenue paid to the town.
Last year, the staff report said 110 permits were sold for another $5,500 in revenue.
The following weekend, the Free State Corvette Club will host its annual display of Corvettes downtown.
The one-day event, set for Oct. 15, will feature a car show, road rally and Boardwalk parade.
According to the staff report, the car show is set from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the inlet lot, with the road rally scheduled 7:30-9 a.m. at the same location.
The Boardwalk parade will begin staging at noon in the inlet lot and proceed north on the Boardwalk at 4 p.m., exiting at 26th Street.
The organizer asked the town for use of electricity, free access to the inlet lot for setup and teardown, police assistance with traffic control on the south end of town for the parade, and permits for potential food trucks as early as 6 a.m. in the inlet lot for breakfast items for the staff and participants.
The staff report said city officials waived the $350 space use and application fees because the organizer agreed to work with the setup for Sunfest the following weekend.
The city is also giving up any revenue that may have been received from the inlet lot, as it will be closed during the event.
The organizer will still pay the city concessions, and asset and support fees, for a total $1,575.

The Ocean City Endless Summer Cruisin’ car show took place in the resort last weekend and the weather held off for the most part, except for Saturday night.
