Parksville Events – Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition & Exhibition

Events Parksville & Qualicum

Parksville Events-Parksville Beach Festival 2017

Want to see something really spectacular? Then you don’t want to miss one of Vancouver Island’s biggest summer events! The Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition & Exhibition returns once again as artists and locals alike can either compete or view some of the most amazing sand sculptures ever seen at this world class event for master sculptors! This event, proudly presented by the Parksville Beach Festival Society, is also a qualifying step forward to the World Championship of Sand Sculpting!

The “pound up” by master sculptors from around the world starts on Thursday July 13, where armed with only sand and water (and a LOT of creativity!) they have 30 hours over 4 days to complete their latest masterpieces. Afterwards the sculptures are available for all to see!

Be sure you bring your camera or smartphone with you to capture sight of these spectacular displays, because after August 20 they are gone forever. Don’t forget either to bring your own sand buckets and shovels as we’re positive you and your family will be inspired after seeing these masterpieces to create some sandcastle magic of your own!

The Parksville Community Park, where this event takes place, is located next to the Lion’s Venture Land Playground and Water Spray Park. Entry to the exhibit is via donation ($3 per person). All proceeds from your donation go to support several local non-profit organizations with approximately $50,000/year being donated back to these volunteer community groups!

See you at the beach! Don’t forget to wear sunscreen.
