  • The Parksville Beach Festival Society presents the Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition and Exhibition,a world class event for master sand sculptors and official qualifying event for the World Championship of Sand Sculpting. Master sand sculptors travel from all corners of the globe to participate in our remarkable competition in Parksville, British Columbia, Canada. Sculptors have 30 hours over four days to create their masterpieces from just sand and water.

    Parksville’s Sand Sculpting Competition history dates back to 1982, when it hosted its first “B.C. Open”. A total of 100 people attended the first event, and it was reviewed as a “great success”. From the BC Open to its present- day title, which welcomed 126,908 visitors in 2018 “The Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition”, has evolved into a world class Master Sculptor competition.

    Known to locals as “Beach Fest”, this 5 ½ week long family-oriented festival runs July 12 to August 18, 2019 includes the Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition & Exhibition, the Tim Hortons free summer concert series, buskers and an artisan market.
