2018 Revere Beach Sand Sculpting Festival

The Revere Beach International Sand Sculpting Festival has grown into one of the largest sand sculpting festivals in the country. Each year sculptors from all over the world come to compete for one of the largest grand prizes in the world. Sculptors work for four days creating masterpieces on the beach with nothing but sand and water. Every year the event features a People’s Choice competition where you get to vote for your favorite.

The Festival also features a full line-up of live entertainment, amusement rides, fireworks, a food truck festival and much more! More Information
