Masters Cup Sanding Ovations

Treasure Island, Florida’s sand sculpture capital, hosts 11th Annual “Sanding Ovations” . All it takes is a pile of sand, some buckets of water, and lots of imagination to build a masterpiece — at least for ten master sculptors who return to Treasure Island for the 11th annual Sanding Ovations Masters Cup Sand Sculpture Competition and Music Festival November 20-24, 2019.

Sanding Ovations

The masterful exhibition of sand sculpting talent at the world-class level is the big appeal, supplemented by the giant sponsor sculpture created by Treasure Island’s own Meredith and Dan Doubleday of Sanding Ovations professional sand sculptors.

The beach food court and beer gardens, an arts and crafts marketplace, fireworks on Saturday evening and three days of live music on the Sanding Ovations stage sponsored by Ka’Tiki make this event a must-see event while visiting Treasure Island.
