Texas Sandfest 2016

Texas Sandfest 2016


Originally a beach-play date, “The Texas Sandfest” is now the largest sand sculpting contest in the world. What started as something to keep the kids distracted as 2 young mothers relaxed in chairs while helping the kiddos create “sand works” of art is now something regarded as a very popular event that Port Aransas hosts.  And when we say popular, we mean popular!  This event will bring 1000’s of viewers/travelers! 

This event is judged on each artist’s skilled detail work, creativity and most importantly originality.  This year there will be two more competitors than last year, with 19 individuals all from different places and only a few that are local sculptors,. The Texas Sandfest contest is an invitational only event and this year is sure to show 2016 skill, style and personality!

Texas Sandfest is a non-profit organization that focuses on giving back to the community and raising funds for local charities as well as scholarships for the Port Aransas High School students. The event staff are all local Port Aransas volunteers that dedicate their time to this growing and world renown event. The event staff strive to make Texas Sandfest a huge success and continue to please not only families, but also adults that are out looking for something new to see! 

This year’s Texas Sandfest dates are April 29-May 1st, a Friday-Sunday event. Surrounding the “art area” will be vendors and the entertainment stage. This stage will host live music all day-all weekend for groovy good vibes. Friday the contest begins at Noon and ends at 6 pm. Saturday and Sunday are considered “all-day” events starting at 9 am and lasting until 6 pm. The judging will take place on Sunday! 

All wristbands are $5 and last all three days of the event; kids 12 and under get in for free! Don’t forget about the amateur contest and kids events! There will be sand castle building lessons for the kids and an open amateur contest for all ages. 

Be ready for a Texas time on Texas Sand! We are looking forward to this year’s 2016 Texas Sandfest!
