revere beach international sand castle festival photoThe Revere Beach International Sand Sculpting Festival is one of the largest sand sculpting festivals in the world! Master sand sculptors come from all over the world to compete for a grand prize.

As the largest Sand Sculpting Festival on the East Coast, we are pleased to welcome world-renowned artists and over 300,000 spectators to our sandy shores.

This year’s festival will run Friday, July 21st to Sunday, July 23rd, 2017 and our centerpiece sculpture will feature the U.S.S. Constitution. The 2017 International Sand Sculpting Festival will serve to provide an artistic representation and celebration of the engineering genius that are Tall Ships.

Make sure you come to Revere Beach on July 21st to marvel at a massive, twenty-foot-wide, sand-sculpture recreation of the USS Constitution along with a ten-foot-tall lighthouse.

In addition to the judges selections, there is a people’s choice award, allowing festival goers to vote on their favorite sculpture.

Along with amazing sand sculptures, the festival also includes fireworks, live entertainment, food trucks/stands, children's activities, and amusement rides.

4-starSand Sculptures Were Amazing
Sand sculptures were beautiful and quite creative. There were several food stands and stands with free samples set up as well. Parking is free on the street. Took a little while to find a spot but not bad. Revere Beach is a very nice beach though I would love to see a no smoking rule.
