Siesta Key Crystal Classic
November 13, 2015
From: 10:00AM to 5:00PM

This November twenty-four of the premier master sand sculptors from all over the world will be competing for 1st place on the #1 beach. The Siesta Key Crystal Classic has become a favorite of many of the professional sand sculptors who have competed here. Citing the beauty and cleanliness of the pristine white sand, sculptors have remarked that their sculptures look almost as if they are "carved in marble."

In only 24 sculpting hours, (spanning the five day event), the master sculptors create sand masterpieces, some over ten feet tall, and transform the always beautiful Siesta Beach into an outdoor art gallery. 

This event was named as a finalist in Sarasota Magazine’s Best of 2014. The five-day art event will include:

Master sand sculptors competing with all day viewing Friday through Tuesday; over 60 vendors Friday through Monday; live entertainment through Sunday starting Friday at noon; and an amateur sand sculptor contest on Saturday.  

Off-site shuttle service will be offered through SCAT, routes 10 & 11 throughout the eventand sculpture viewing with the special Mobi-Mat on the sand for easier walking on Tuesday, Nov. 17th.

Applications are now being accepted for our Vendor Village and may be obtained on the website
