2018 US Sand Sculpting Competition at Broadway Pier

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – It’s considered a must-see festival, not only in San Diego, but around the world.

Elizabeth Alvarez was live at Broadway Pier for the 2018 US San Sculpting Competition.

One of the top 20 “Must See” seaside festivals in the world acclaimed by American Express and USA Today’s 10 Best, the U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge & Dimensional Art Expo, a Labor Day weekend tradition, is returning to the waterfront in downtown San Diego for Labor Day weekend. This family-fun filled event is held on the beautiful Broadway Pier and Landing.

This will be the seventh year that one of the world’s most important sand-sculpting competitions will be held on this built-for-the-occasion beach, with over 300 tons of sand dumped on the pier on San Diego’s big bay. It’s easy for sculptors to call it one of the most creative atmospheres in the world, as it takes place in America’s Finest City with sandcastles stretching west nearly 1,000 feet into the bay beneath the beautiful San Diego skyline. In addition to interviewing and seeing master sand builders work, you can learn how to build one.
