International Sand Sculpting Festival Returns November 12-15

BrandStory

The Siesta Key Crystal Classic is a visual and cultural arts festival held on Siesta Beach every November. Celebrating our 11th year, November 12 - 15, 2021, the festival has hosted over 300,000 attendees on our #1 beach, with over 125,000 of these visitors hailing from outside of Sarasota County.  Among the many family-friendly activities that the festival hosts during its 4 days, the event that keeps visitors coming back every year is the master sand sculpting competition that is held during the first 3 days of the festival’s opening. This competition attracts 24 master sculptors from all over the world who compete for first place on Siesta Beach.

In just 24 sculpting hours, the master sculptors create sand masterpieces, some over ten feet tall, and transform the always beautiful Siesta Beach into an outdoor art gallery. It represents some of the most beautiful, ephemeral works of art your eyes will ever see. And it’s more than just sand...the festival also features live music daily along with a large village of shopping and food and drink vendors. Other activities include the popular three-day “Quick Sand” competition, sand sculpting lessons and an amateur competition. And, hours are extended on Saturday until 9 pm with colored lights on all the sculptures and live music by Fleetwood Max on Saturday night.

More information and pre-sale tickets are all available at the website: siestakeycrystalclassic.com
