Held every August, for the past 38 years! at Jetties Beach, this late-summer ritual is a favorite among participants and sandcastle admirers. Each year, over 50 sculptures emerge from the sand from families and teams vying for the top honors. The rules are simple - be creative! Highlights have included everything from Nantucket Lightship Baskets to VW Bugs. A visit to Jetties Beach to watch the sculpting in action or to view the finished sculptures at sunset is well worth the trip! To be a sandcastle sculpter, please remember to plan ahead. Pre-registration is necessary for a guaranteed space. Register early at Nantucket Island School of Design and the Arts starting Monday July 9th until Noon August 17th. Also, in the case of rain, the event will be held one day later on Sunday, August 19th. www.nisda.org
