The event begins with the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast on January 12th at 8:00am. This breakfast is about encouraging everyone to follow their dreams and make them a reality. You’ll hear from Colonel Gregory D. Gadsona, a veteran who served our country for over 26 years, enjoy music from the Morgan State University Choir, and listen to Mayor Meehan and other community figures talk about turning dreams into actions.

Later that evening, there’s a fantastic tribute to Michael Jackson called “Who’s Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Experience.” It’s a show that brings alive the music and magic of Michael Jackson, and it’s something you won’t want to miss!

The show begins at 7:00pm on January 12th. Get your tickets here. Doors open at 6:30pm, and the show starts at 7:00pm!

And to wrap it all up on January 14th, there’s a special concert by the Grammy award-winning, Take 6, a group known for their incredible acapella tunes. Their harmonies and music styles blend together to create something truly special.

Get your tickets here! Show starts at 7:00pm.

Apart from the music, there are also other things to enjoy during Dreamfest. There will be art events showcasing talented young artists, performances by Jay Konzciouz, and even film showcases at the Ocean City Art League.
