Annual Sand Sculpture Contest
Point Reyes National Seashore
Prizes awarded in each of several age and group catagories.
Registration begins at 9 am at the Ken Patrick Visitor Center.
Please note the change of date. The Annual Sand Sculpture Contest will be held on the Sunday before Labor Day weekend, as opposed to the Sunday of Labor Day weekend.
We welcome all ages at this free community event located at Drakes Beach. Categories include: Children (fourteen years of age and under), Families, Adult Individuals, and Adult Groups. Three prizes will be awarded in each of those categories, along with prizes for the sculpture with the most recycled plastic included.
Please be aware that parking will be extremely limited during the contest and Drakes Beach will be heavily impacted with contest participants. If possible, please carpool with friends. To avoid crowds here, please consider visiting another beach in the park.
This event is family based, but please remember no dogs are allowed on this designated swimming beach (no lifeguard on duty).
Bring a picnic and spend the day!
The PRNSA bookstore adjacent to the Kenneth C. Patrick Visitor Center will be open from 10 am to 4:30 pm on Saturday, August 25, 2018, and from 8:30 am to 5 pm, on Sunday, August 26, 2018. There will be hot and cold drinks, snacks, sandwiches, books, and gifts for sale.
