Schedule of Events







With close to picture perfect weather, the 21st Annual Endless Summer Cruisin had more than 2,000 hot rods, street machines, customs and more taking part in car shows at the Inlet, Convention Center and various citywide locations.

To help celebrate American Graffiti’s 45th Anniversary, Candy Clark and Bo Hopkins were at the event all four days meeting and greeting fans plus posing for pictures next to the American Graffiti show cars that were on display inside the OC Convention Center.  Joining the fun Saturday, from the hit show Roadkill, Mike Finnegan was at the Beachside Inlet signing autographs and talking all things automotive.

Being held in conjunction with Endless Summer Cruisin, the 38th Annual Hot Rod & Custom Car Show took place Thursday, Friday and Saturday inside the Ocean City Convention Center.  Some of the hottest show cars in the mid-Atlantic were on display as well as the “Black Out” Veteran Tribute Truck. Awards were presented to the top two in each class as well as cash to the Elite 8.  Taking home Best in Show was Chuck & Tina Niglio’s 32 Ford, from Silver Spring MD, First Runner Up was Donald Wedding’s 66 Chevy from Toms River NJ, Second Runner Up was Eddie Denkenberger’s 37 Ford from Federica DE and Fourth Runner up was Joe & Vicki Sheehan’s 69 Chevy from Middletown PA, which also won Spectator’s Choice!


Rockin the stage of the OC Performing Arts Center during Endless was one of the world’s best vocal groups, ROCKAPELLA.  Showing off their raw power of pure vocal talent and originality they sang favorite Motown, Classic, Pop, Rock and more songs performed like never before! 


Some of the top National names in the country were on display at Manufacturer’s Midway located at the Inlet including Advance Auto Parts, AMSOIL, Automotive Lift Service, Events Apparel, Keen, Maryland Lottery, Miller Welding, Sundance Vacations and more.


Another Endless Summer Cruisin Car Show highlight were the special Boardwalk Parades that took place Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings. Spectators could sit back and watch the beautiful cars cruise down the iconic Ocean City Boardwalk.

Saturday Endless Summer Cruisin and the US 13 Dragway teamed up for an action packed event, Takin’ It To the Strip.  Events included the “King of the Strip” Showdown, Jet Dragsters from Larson’s Motorsports, a burnout contest, car show, American Graffiti Race and a Car Blow Up Fundraiser that raised over $1,000 for Believe in Tomorrow.

Saturday night the Trimper Amusement’s Family Fun Night took place at Trimper Amusements along the south end of the boardwalk.  Local Boy Scout Troup 261 was on site for the “Dollar Makes a Difference Car Show” and raised close to $500 during the Neon Light Car Show.

On Sunday the Grand Finale Awards took place at the Beachside Inlet. Prior to the Awards a banner auction was held raising over $1,000 for local charities.  During Endless Summer Cruisin 2018 there were more than 500 trophies, plaques and awards presented plus over 3,000 giveaways.  Some of the highlights included the Mayor’s Prestigious Award presented to John Sisson’s 64 Chevy from Brookeville MD, the Senator Mathias Award presented in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month to Edward Klesh’s pink 56 Ford from Brookefield CT and the top Ocean City Award presented to William Ayd’s 35 Pierce Arrow from Glen Arm MD.
