Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival is a ten-day beach wide celebration that pays tribute to Tampa Bay's two most valuable assets, our sugar sands and sunsets! The Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival consists of a variety of activities for all ages including a children's play area, street performers, artisans and crafters, live entertainment, fireworks, sand sculpting classes, speed sand demonstrations, master sand sculpting competition, and the main attraction, The Sugar Sand Walk Exhibit. A 21,000 square-foot tent will be filled with sand-sculpted art crafted by world-class sculptors using Clearwater’s internationally famous sugar sand.
