World Championship of Sand Sculpting

World Championship of Sand Sculpting

American Sand Sculpting Championships Presented by the Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce November 22nd to December 1st, 2013; Wyndham Garden formerly Holiday Inn, Fort Myers Beach, Florida. It’s time to hit the beach! Bring the whole gang down to Fort Myers Beach and watch sculptors from around the world use over 1,000 tons of sand to turn Fort Myers Beach into a temporary art gallery.

Come watch and participate in special events all week long as Master, Advanced Amateur and amateur competitors battle it out for the number one spot. We invite everyone of all ages to come and learn the tricks of the pros in daily workshops, use their newly acquired skills to compete against fellow audience members, get inspired, and make memories with young ones that will last for years.

Tourists and residents alike will have the rare opportunity to see a collection of some of the world’s very best sand sculptors create amazing sand sculptures. Featuring 30 sculptors hailing from several different countries, the singles will compete the first week, followed by the doubles. The Southeastern Tourism Society recognized the American Sand Sculpting Championship as a top 20 event of the entire southeastern United States. It was also recently listed as one of the top sand sculpting events by CNN earlier this month.
