The Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival returns to bright and beautiful Clearwater Beach March 29 to April 14, 2024! This year, the festival celebrates its 10-year anniversary and its biggest year yet with the theme, “Sands of Time.” This year's theme conveys a sense of nostalgia, celebration and appreciation for the festival’s past ten years, while looking forward to an even more exciting and inspiring future for the museum and the art of sand sculpting.

From architectural masterpieces created from Clearwater’s famous sugar sand to concerts, performers and daily entertainment, the Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival Presented by Visit St. Pete Clearwater is an annual event attracting visitors from around the world.

Fourteen world-class artists craft elaborate sand sculptures from Clearwater’s internationally famous sugar sand. The works of art are on display in a 21,000-square-foot structure. More than 1,000 tons of Clearwater sand takes on a new life, bringing visitors on a “sandtastic” adventure. The festival is a joint effort between Sunsets at Pier 60 Daily Festival, a 501(c)3 organization and the city of Clearwater.

General admission to the sculpture exhibit will be $14 per person and free for children 3 years old and younger. Discounted tickets for military personnel, police officers, firefighters, teachers and healthcare workers can be purchased for $10 each on “Frontline Fridays,” which are March 29, April 5, and April 12, 2024. These discounted tickets will be available at the gate only with proper identification. All other tickets can be purchased online at 

New this year is “Timeless Tuesdays.” Visitors aged 60 and older can enjoy a discounted ticket price of $12 each on Tuesdays: April 2 and April 9, 2024.
