July 12th, 2023 – The highly anticipated Revere Beach International Sand Sculpting Festival returns on Friday, July 28th through Sunday, July 30th, bringing together renowned sand sculptors from around the globe to showcase their extraordinary talents.

The Revere Beach International Sand Sculpting Festival is an awe-inspiring celebration of creativity and craftsmanship, where master sculptors transform ordinary sand into breathtaking works of art. The theme for this year’s event will be “Celebrating 90 Years of Kong” and will feature a centerpiece sand sculpture highlighting an epic King Kong Battle. In addition to the centerpiece, attendees will witness an extraordinary display of skill as 15 talented sand sculptors from across the world compete for $28,000 in prize money.

In addition to the stunning sand sculptures, the festival offers a vibrant atmosphere along Revere Beach for all ages. For entertainment, there will be over 20 acts of street performers, live music, and a special performance from Blue Man Group in addition to various amusement rides. While you walk along the boulevard, there are almost 30 delicious food trucks and food vendors to choose from, various interactive exhibitors, shopping at The Beach Shop Pavilion where almost 20 local, emerging small business, or non-profits showcase their products or services, and 15 workout classes from MoveStudios throughout the weekend.
