We will launch the 27th Annual Sand Sculpture Festival with a fun day at the beach! Five to ten teams will be personally invited to participate during the Saturday, July 9th event where they will create their sandy masterpieces for all to see. Community members are invited to come view these incredible works of art from 11 am to 5 pm. The best time to view finished pieces will be from 2 to 5 pm.
The Launch Party will trigger a month long physically-distanced Sand Sculpture Festival taking place until the end of July. During the Dispersed Sand Sculpture Festival, teams are invited to create their own sandy creations on local beaches, send photos of their sand sculptures to Friends of the Dunes, post creations on social media, vote for their favorites, and be entered to win exciting prizes. Plan to make a date with a sandy stretch of beach and get creative with your family and friends this July!
