Parksville Beach Festival

The Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition and Exhibition is a world class event for Master Sand Sculptors and is an official qualifying event for the World Championship of Sand Sculpting! Master Sand Sculptors travel from all corners of the globe to participate in this remarkable competition and exhibition in Parksville, British Columbia, Canada. Sculptors have 30 hours over four days to create their masterpieces from just sand and water (and a lot of ingenuity!).

The 2022 competition takes place July 15 (2pm-8:30pm) and July 16/17 (9:30am-8:30pm).  The 2022 exhibition is open daily 9:30am-8:30pm July 1-August 18. 

Entry to the exhibition is by a suggested donation of $5 per person. Proceeds from your donation support several local non-profit organizations with approx. $65,000 per year being donated back to these volunteer community groups.

The 2022 Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition and Exhibition is located in Parksville's Community Park, next to the Lion's Venture Land Playground and Water Spray Park.
