This three-day festival features incredible masterpieces composed entirely of sand. Master solo sculptors, master duo sculptors, semi-pro sculptors and coordinators compete for prizes in their prospective categories.

 

These talented sand artists draw locals and visitors alike. The Texas Sandfest is more than just an outdoor sand gallery. There are food vendors, beer tents, live music, and sand sculpting lessons for the aspiring amateurs.

 

Location: Port Aransas Beach Road
