5th Annual U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge & Dimensional Art Expo Returns to Downtown San Diego


** A Labor Day weekend-long extravaganza for the whole family! **


 The strongest field of World Masters yet assembled will compete in the 5th Annual U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge and Dimensional Art Exposition as it returns to San Diego on Labor Day weekend September 2 – 5, 2016. Master Sculptors Benjamin Probanza from Mexico and Katsuhiku Chaen from Japan are joining other internationally renowned artists from Russia, Latvia, the Netherlands, Italy, Ireland and Canada in battling some of the best from the U.S. for over $60,000 in prize and appearance money, as well as their national pride.

The event has become one of the world’s most important sand sculpture competitions and has been named one of USA Today’s Top 10.

In addition to the amazing sand sculptures being created and displayed during the festival, artists who work in other media like metal, glass, acrylic, wood, fabric, ceramics and gemstones will display and sell their work in the Dimensional Art Exposition.  Members of the San Diego Sculptors Guild headline an impressive line-up of artists from throughout the Southwestern U.S., and the event is working with the City of San Diego’s International Affairs Board and the producers of San Diego’s Latin Art Festival to add more dimensional artists from Mexico and Latin America.  

This family-friendly extravaganza offers a wonderful array of activities for guests of all ages.
