Sugar Sand Festival

The Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival is produced by Sunsets at Pier 60 Society Inc a 501C-3 not for profit arts organization.

 We LOVE our volunteers! There’s no better teamwork than the 700+ volunteers working together to host this event for the community. We treasure our volunteers so much; we call them “Sand Ambassadors”.  Come serve your community while having a “Sandtastic” time on Clearwater Beach!
The Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival stands out as the #1 sand sculpture festival in Florida, with world-renowned sand artists entered to win the best in show with their granular master pieces. Head to Clearwater Beach and be a part of the excitement! Welcome and greet guests as they travel through the expansive 21,000-square foot exhibit. Guide students through interactive field trips, assist visitors coming for the toes in the sand concerts and fireworks. Other areas include kid’s play zones and sand sculpting classes! There’s more fun to have during the festival than grains of sand on Clearwater Beach.  Join our Sand Ambassador team and receive free transportation from downtown, a ticket to the event, volunteer t-shirt, and a meal on us!
