Event Navigation

Celebrating our 10th year, The Siesta Key Crystal Classic is a visual and cultural arts festival held on Siesta Beach every November.

Among the many family-friendly activities that the festival hosts during its 4 days, the event that keeps visitors coming back every year is the master sand sculpting competition that is held during the first 3 days of the festival’s opening. This competition attracts 24 master sculptors from all over the world who compete for 1st place on Siesta Beach.

In just 24 sculpting hours, the master sculptors create sand masterpieces, some over ten feet tall, and transform the always beautiful Siesta Beach into an outdoor art gallery. It represents some of the most beautiful, ephemeral works of art your eyes will ever see.

And it’s more than just sand…the festival also features live music daily along with a large village of shopping and food and drink vendors. Other activities include the popular three day “Quick Sand” competition, sand sculpting lessons and an amateur competition. And, hours are extended on Saturday & Sunday until 9 pm with colored lights on all the sculptures and live music
