For almost 100 years, the Ocean City Music Pier has been hosting entertainment for the popular Jersey Shore Town.  Since opening in 1929, some of the biggest musical acts have taken the stage off the Ocean City Boardwalk.

Located off Moorlyn Terrance between 9th and 8th streets, the Ocean City Music Pier is a South Jersey Icon in the same category as Lucy the Elephant in Margate and the Cape May Point Lighthouse. Some of the famous music acts who have performed on the Ocean City Boardwalk over the years include Switchfoot, Jason Mraz, Arlo Guthrie, The Bacon Brothers, and John Oats.
