AIA Sandcastle Competition at East Beach

Galveston's annual sandcastle building competition returns on Saturday, when teams of master builders will create along themes like pop culture, kids board games, Americana, the space race, and more—all vying for the coveted Gold Bucket Award.


This year there will be a bonus viewing day on Sunday for beachgoers to take in these architectural marvels (with potentially smaller crowds). There will also be free sandcastle-building lessons in conjunction with this viewing.



Free, though parking at East Beach is $15, cash only. No ATMs on-site. Learn more.
