What is the Neptune Festival's International Sand Sculpting Championship?
Each year Virginia Beach welcomes some of the world’s best sand sculpting talent for the annual International Sand Sculpting Championship. A huge tent, roughly the size of an American football field, is erected while sculptors turn sand into incredible works of art! A walkway allows visitors to watch the artists in action and then the finished sculptures are available for viewing for about a week. There are also sand sculpting clinics where you can try it out for yourself, as well as meet and greets with the sculptors.
Need to Know
The opening weekend of the sand sculpting competition coincides with the Virginia Beach Boardwalk Festival which includes live music, an 8km race, parade, regatta and one of the finest arts and craft shows in the country.
Admission is $5, while 12 and under are free.
Did You Know?
The internationally recognized definition of sand sculpting dictates that the only materials that may be used to create sculptures are water (salt or fresh) and sand. The sculptures cannot have any structural supports and no pre-produced forms can be used in or on the sculpture.
