Discover your inner sculptor as you mold sand, shells, seaweed and whatever else you can find on the beach into whatever you can dream up.
2022 SANDCASTLE CONTEST August 13, 2022 @ 10 AM
The Lincoln City Sandcastle Contest at Siletz Bay is a wondrous, fun-filled day celebrating one of Lincoln City’s best adventures—playing on our beaches. Take part in the Sandcastle Contest, held at Siletz Bay in the Historic Taft District presented by Mo’s Lincoln City. Head to SW 51st Street and watch the sand come to life with categories like mermaids, chowder heads, cruise ships, and more.
Event registration begins on August 13th, 2022 outside Mo's in Lincoln City. There is a $5 fee to enter and proceeds go to the Backpack for Kids program. The event starts at 10 AM and the judging will begin at 1 PM.
There will be prizes awarded to the best sand sculptures. Categories for the competition include:
Only sand, water, shells and other natural beach materials found on the beach that day can be used for construction. Forms can be used in the construction process but cannot support the final structure. Hand tools are allowed, but not power tools. This is an amateur competition—professional “sand artists” are disqualified from winning prizes.
