Key West has hosted numerous International Sand Art Competitions over the years, beginning in 2014 and lasting for several subsequent years.

There have also been a number of related events, including amateur sand sculpting competitions, “Treasure Digs” and others.

All of the events combine beach fun with nontraditional artistry and one of the most beautiful, ephemeral art mediums in the world — sand!

All of the events have been wildly successful and very fun for spectators, artists and other event participants.
