See Treasure Island’s beach come to life at the annual Sanding Ovations event happening in November 2023. See what happens when master sculptors use their imaginations and turn piles of sand and buckets of water into “outSANDing” works of art.
The masterful exhibition of sand sculpting talent at a world-class level is an enormous appeal, supplemented by the sponsor sculptures created by Treasure Island’s own Meredith and Dan Doubleday of Sanding Ovations professional sand sculptors. Sculptors from around the world will head to Treasure Island to show off their talents and bring the sand to life.
Visitors will also enjoy a beach food court, beer garden and arts and crafts marketplace. Kites and night fly’s will be provided by Windworks of Maderia Beach. With fireworks lighting up the night sky on Saturday, and local, regional, and national touring bands making waves throughout the event.
Sanding Ovations is free and open to the public.
History of Sanding Ovations
Florida was also home to the world’s largest sandcastle in 1985. Florida Governor Jeb Bush proclaimed Treasure Island as the Sand Sculpture Capital of Florida in 2001. This is what helped lead to the creation of Sanding Ovations, an annual sand sculpting exhibition and competition. Master sand sculptors from around the world come to Treasure Island to create sand masterpieces for everyone to enjoy.
