Event Details

The 2022 Siesta Key Crystal Classic International Sand Sculpting Festival will take place Saturday, November 12 through Monday, November 14, 2022

Due to the forecast of tropical storm conditions on Thursday, November 10th, the Siesta Key Crystal Classic will not be open to the public on Friday, November 11. This will allow event organizers and vendors to complete the necessary setup in a safe manner. The festival will be open Saturday, November 12, 10 am – 9 pm; Sunday, November 13, 10 am – 5 pm; and Monday, November 14, 10 am – 5 pm.

Outstanding sand sculptures by artisans worldwide and awesome bands all weekend long!!

24 artists converge on Siesta Key to compete in a fantastic Master Sand Sculpting competition. The sculptors create a large community carve, 8 solo sculptures, and 8 team sculptures. On Saturday evening, enjoy the sculptures under colored lights after sunset. The timed competition is judged and the winners are revealed on Sunday afternoon. Come and vote for your favorite sculpture until Monday at 5 PM with wooden tokens (available for purchase) so you can help determine the People’s Choice award. People’s Choice Award will be announced on Tuesday, November 16, online on our website and our Facebook page.
