Sand Castle Contests/Festivals Around the World
Scroll on down for the entire list of known (to me!) sand sculpture events, worldwide. The list is arranged by geographical region. For more info on an event, click the link of the month in which it typically occurs.... or browse by calendar month.
Note: If a listing does not have a link, that is because we were unable to find any updated info on it. Bold Listings indicate that this event is one of "the Big Ones," involving some of the world's best sculptors. * means it is an official qualifier for the World Championship.
For more info on events that are not linked, try contacting the local chamber or tourist bureau -- and while you are at it why not suggest that they send their event info to this site? Although they sometimes have an answering service Houston by phone, a phone call or an email might do the trick.
