The contest is pure, creative fun on the pure white sand beach of Siesta Key, rated the Number 1 beach in the USA a couple of years back!

This annual, world-famous, contest is being held on Saturday morning May 07, 2016.

The artful competition has been featured, in the past, on cable-TV’s The Travel Channel.Image title

This contest, each year in May, is a popular event attended by all age groups and skill levels.

You can find some painstakingly sculpted sand-art designs by some very talented people.

With three categories of competitors: Adult Humorous, Adult Miscellaneous, Children 10 and under and Youth 11-17, there are more than enough talented sculptors to watch as they toil on their creations. The contest is free and open to all. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. at Siesta Key Beach just south of the Pavilion. Judging commences at about 1 p.m. and winners are announced around 2 p.m. Judging is usually done by a local group of celebrities and/or art aficionados.The weather is usually terrific for the contest, with bright Florida sunshine and blue skies along with a background of the beautiful turquoise waters of one of the Gulf of Mexico’s finest beaches. 

Although this is a very popular event, there’s plenty of room on the beach for all the sculptors and spectators.

Bring your beach chair and cooler, sunshade and sunscreen and enjoy the mid day while watching the talented artists create their masterpieces on the beach!
