The World-Renowned International Sand Sculpting Festival will showcase one of Massachusetts most famous Tall Ships, on Revere Beach from Friday, July 21st to Sunday, July 23rd, 2017.

The Revere Beach Partnership is proud to announce the dates and theme for the 2017 International Sand Sculpting Festival, hosted on America’s first public beach, Revere Beach, established in 1896.

The annual festival draws upwards of 900,000 spectators from all over the country who come to watch master sand sculptors compete for first prize in the solo Master Sand Sculpting Competition. The festival also features gourmet food trucks, live entertainment, local vendors, exhibit booths, children’s sand sculpting lessons, and fireworks over the course of 3 days.

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.
