2019 Winners

The 2019 Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition took place July 12-14, 2019.

Visitors witnessed master sculptors carving sand using the theme of “Myths & Legends.” Twenty-nine competitors were allowed 30 hours to convert 350 yards of sand into sculptures based on this very broad theme. The Parksville Beach Festival Society handed out a total of $47,700 to the sculptors at the Awards Ceremony on the Sunday evening. The results of the competition are below.
