The Texas Sand Sculpture Festival, called "SandFest", is an incredible three-day event held on the beach in Port Arkansas, Texas on Mustang Island. Master sculptors fly in from all over the world to compete by creating huge life- size sand sculptures. See our web site for photos! In addition to the "Masters" contest we have sand contests for Youth, Amateurs, and Pro-Ams. SandFest has several tents with free activities such as and Entertainment Tent with live music and a Youth Tent with free games and crafts for the kids. "Lesson Mountain" has free sand sculpting lessons for ages 4 through 104. Our centerpiece is 250 tons of sand carved by over 20 master sculptors. SandFest is very family- oriented with things to do for everyone in the family. SandFest is amazing. People love the experience and return every year.
