Polar Bear Plunge

Celebrating 23 years of the “coolest” Maryland Tradition. Are you brave enough to take a dip into the 30 degree bay?

Every January over 10,000 courageous plungers head to Sandy Point State Park seeking thrills and chills to benefit the 7,782 athletes of Special Olympics Maryland. Join us in the Rams Head Ice Lodge for live music and drinks as you prepare for the chilly dip! This heated tent is the perfect place to warm-up, celebrate, and enjoy Maryland's largest winter festival!
