Mark your calendar and plan to join us for Oxford Day, April 27, 2024.

Early bird shoppers, take note:  This year the Oxford Library’s Mega Book Sale begins at 8:00 on Market Street.  In addition to amazing buys on books, you may purchase raffle tickets to support scholarships for Oxford Kids Camp and Chesapeake College.

One of our most treasured events will begin at 8:30 – the Blessing of the Pets, followed by the Talbot Humane Dog Walk which finishes at Town Park for the annual Dog Show.

Parade Route

A Family Hour of fun games for all ages will happen 9:00-10:00 in Town Park near the swings.

You may enjoy bake sales and Oxford Museum Opening Day.

The Parade starts at 11 and marches right along Morris Street with an assortment of floats, fire engines, bands, old cars, walkers and animals—it’s always uniquely Oxford!

Plan to relax, walk about, keep social distance, and enjoy the day.

If you want to experience Oxford from the water, visit the  Oxford Bellevue Ferry which has been in existence since 1683! The Oxford Ferry will welcome free walk-on passengers (one roundtrip per person) through mid-afternoon!

Your hunger can be satisfied at many venues around town including, of course, our fine restaurants, and also booths in Town Park and Causeway Park, our churches and the Oxford Market.

There will be designated parking areas.

Be aware that Morris Street and some side streets close to traffic before and during the Parade, from about 10:15-noon. Allow extra time to reach Oxford boatyards and for moving about town. Residents should plan their days with the expectation of delays in driving.

For a brief introduction to Oxford Day, you are invited to watch this video. The music is “Chicken Fried” written by  Zac Brown and performed by the US Navy Band “Country Current” at an earlier Oxford Day.
