Texas SandFest — the largest Native-Sand Sand Sculpture Competition in the USA — is an internationally recognized 3-day family event that draws sculptors and tens of thousands of visitors from around the world each year to Port Aransas. Join us this year for some amazing sand sculptures, food, live music, kids activities — and shopping for jewelry, arts & crafts, clothing, furniture, souvenirs & more in the vendor area.
SandFest is on the beach between mile markers 9 and 13.
The north entrance to SandFest is on the beach at Sandcastle Drive (~marker 8). The south entrance is near Beach Access Road 1A (~marker 18).
Bron’s Beach carts will be providing free beach cart shuttle service to take people to and from the end of Sandcastle Drive and Beach Access Road 1A to the SandFest entrance gates.
