American Sand Sculpting Championships

2015 Competition: November 20 – 29, 2015
Presented by
the Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce

That’s a wrap on the 28th Annual Sand Sculpting Festival! Despite the grey weather, the event was–as usual, a huge success. Over 40,000 visitors trekked to Fort Myers Beach to join us in celebrating all of the wonderful artists and their stunning sculptures. Congratulations to our 1st place winners, Abe Waterman, Melineige Beauregard and Delayne Corbett, Amanda Bolduc—as well as all of our other winners and participants. The success of such a large event is due in part to our fantastic team of volunteers and sponsors, we couldn’t do it with out you all! We look forward to hitting the sand again in Fall of 2015

See you on the Beach!
