The biggest event of the year in Port Aransas!
The Texas SandFest started in 1997. Since then it has grown into an extensive 3 day long festival. Artists from around the world come to Port Aransas both as amateurs and professionals and compete each year in the sand sculpting competition. There are always different themes each year but the main theme/mission stays the same: "Texas Sandfest Gives Back" Mission: To give back to the community by raising funds for local charities and scholarships for high school seniors.
The event continues to be held in the same area of the beach over the past few years. Mile Markers 10-14 experience most of the action. At Island Retreat you are just walking distance from our boardwalk to the festival, no need to find parking!
