The #1 Sand Sculpting Festival in Florida

The Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival stands out as one of the best sand sculpture festivals in Florida, with world-renowned sand artists entered to win the best in show with their crazy-cool sand creations.

Head to Clearwater Beach and get your ticket to peruse the expansive 21,000-square foot structure, and gaze at the artists at work creating their amazing sand sculptures. With free live music, fireworks, kid’s play zones, and sand sculpting classes there’s more fun to have during the festival than grains of sand on Clearwater Beach.

2021 Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival Canceled

Due to the current health and safety concerns presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as numerous travel restrictions that prohibit us from bringing in the team of talented sculptors from around the world, the Annual Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival on Clearwater Beach, FL will not take place as planned for April 2021. These sculptors are an integral part of what makes this event SANDTASTIC! Additionally, as a result of the present protocols placed on large events, the Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival is unable to obtain the necessary permits which would allow the event to take place. A heart-felt thank you to all of the sponsors, residents, visitors both domestically and internationally who have supported this community event over the years and made it a shining success for Clearwater. Our goal is to bring you the type of event that you have come to enjoy and cherish, a museum quality art exhibit and family-friendly celebration where our patron’s safety is of the utmost importance. We look forward to seeing you in 2022! - Respectfully, Team Sugar Sand.
