Treasure Island Beach
Sand Castle Building Competition
Nov. 17th 2022
Treasure Island, Fla. – Come see Treasure Island’s beach come to life at the 2022 Sanding Ovations event scheduled Nov. 17-20, 2022. See what happens when master sculptors use their imaginations and turn piles of sand and buckets of water into “outSANDing” works of art.
There is plenty of room to spread out at the beach food court, beer garden and arts and crafts marketplace. Kites and night fly’s will be provided by Windworks of Maderia Beach. With fireworks lighting up the night sky on Saturday, and local, regional, and national touring bands making waves throughout the event, it is a must-see experience in beautiful Treasure Island.
Florida was also home to the world’s largest sandcastle in 1985. Florida Governor Jeb Bush proclaimed Treasure Island as the Sand Sculpture Capital of Florida in 2001. This is what helped lead to the creation of Sanding Ovations, an annual sand sculpting exhibition and competition. Master sand sculptors from around the world come to Treasure Island to create sand masterpieces for everyone to enjoy.
