Special Events

If you are interested in holding an event at Sandy Point, send an email to or call the park office at 410-974-2149 and request a Special Event Request form. NOTE: Due to heavy park visitation, requests for events between May to September are not often approved​.

​​Note: Special events include but are not limited to:

  • Baptisms
  • Field Trips & Other Youth Events
  • Weddings

Please note: Sandy Point State Park is not a prime venue for weddings and receptions in East Beach because of the lack of privacy. When considering Sandy Point for a wedding and/or reception, please keep in mind that all twelve shelters in East Beach share the same beach area. Weddings on the beach could be interrupted by other beach users. Chairs cannot be set up on the beach and areas of the beach cannot be roped off for special events. Also, all shelters in East Beach share bath houses, amenities and restroom facilities. No amplified music or DJ’s are allowed. Keep in mind that shelter fees do not include the per person entrance charges; all persons entering the Park will be charged the per person fee.
