Welcome Spring's Arrival at the Ward Museum

What better way to welcome spring’s arrival than by slipping off your flip-flops and dipping your toes in the sand? Mark your calendar now for April 25-27 when the 44th Ward World Championship Wildfowl Carving Competition and Art Festival takes place at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center in Ocean City, MD.

  • View the works of the world’s premier wildfowl artists.
  • Shop from a wide variety of vendors for paintings, photography, carvings, bronze sculptures, jewelry, folk art, home decorating items and carving supplies.
  • Attend the live auction of one-of-a-kind carvings and artwork from renowned wildlife artists.
  • Take a carving class or attend a seminar from World Champion and professional carvers.
  • Bring the children to the Kid’s Corner to paint miniature decoys, learn soap carving and create other make-and-take projects.
  • Celebrate acclaimed carvers at the Living Legends Award Dinner.
  • Watch live birds of prey demonstrations by Brian Bradley, master falconer, of Skyhunters in Flight.
  • Enjoy bird and pony watching on a beautiful sunset cruise on the bay.
  • Stroll the boardwalk of the convention center while watching artfully carved decoys floating in the bay.

With your multi-day event pass, there’s plenty to do all within a convenient walk or shuttle ride from your beach hotel.
