Siesta Key Crystal ClassicDon’t miss the Siesta Key Crystal Classic Master Sandsculpting Competition starting on Friday, November 14th and running through Tuesday, November 18th. Founded in 2010, the Crystal Classic has quickly become a local tradition and a draw for visitors from outside Sarasota County, which account for over 50% of the 35,000+ attendees.

Master sculptors spend three days creating sand masterpieces, some over ten feet tall, and transform the always beautiful Siesta Beach into an outdoor art gallery. Visitors enter the Sand Sculpture Gallery and immediately notice the Sponsor Logo Sculpture and are fascinated by it size and the number of community organizations and local businesses that support the event. Visitors arriving on Friday have the opportunity to see the beginning stages of the sculptures and enjoy guessing what the pile of sand will look after the sculptor completes the transformation.

Siesta Key Crystal Classic 2The competition phase of the Crystal Classic ends on Sunday at noon leaving the remainder of the day, Monday and new this year, Tuesday too, for visitors to view completed sculptors before they are cleared away on Wednesday morning.
