The Parksville Beach Festival Society presents the Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition and Exhibition, a world class event for master sand sculptors and official qualifying event for the World Championship of Sand Sculpting. Master sand sculptors travel from all corners of the globe to participate in our remarkable competition 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!).
Parksville's Sand Sculpting Competition history dates back to 1982, when it hosted its first "B.C. Open". A total of 100 people attended the first event, and it was reviewed as a "great success". From the BC Open to its present day title which welcomed 133,430 people, our largest attendance ever in 2016 "The Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition", has evolved into a world class Master Sculptor competition.
