It’s one of Clearwater Beach’s most anticipated events, and this year it’s even bigger, better and easier to attend. The Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival presented by Visit St. Petersburg/Clearwater will transform Clearwater Beach into a fantasy world April 14-23, 2017. This year’s theme will be Sugar Sand FantaSEA, “A Magical Adventure Above and Below the Sea.”
Due to the overwhelming interest and success of the festival, online ticket sales are being offered to visitors in an effort to enhance the guest experience. Visitors can pre-purchase tickets so they won’t have to stand in line to buy tickets. These ticket holders will have their own, seperate, “fast entrance” to the event, and will receive a $5 discount on all festival merchandise.
New this year is the Shephard’s VIP Lounge Experience, where visitors will be able to enjoy the Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival in style with a swanky experience from our friends at Shephard’s Beach Resort. VIP access gets you into the tented bar area with private air-conditioned restrooms, lounge seating and live DJ. VIP ticket holders will also get admission to the Sugar Sand Walk Exhibit, a Shephard’s 40th anniversary T-shirt and swag bag, complimentary beer or wine drink tickets, admission to Shephard’s Wave Nightclub and more.
Admission to the sculpture exhibit will be $10 for adults, $6 for students ages six to 17 years old, and $8 for those 55 and older, military personnel, police officers, firefighters and teachers (proper identification required). Children five and younger will be admitted free of charge with adult purchase. Adult and senior tickets include a complimentary souvenir photo.
