39th Annual Sand Castle Contest

On the beach between Brooklyn Ave. and Hickman St. in Rehoboth Beach, DE.  The contest is open to both adults and children.  Sculptures may be started at any time on the day of competition, but must be completed for judging by 3:00 PM.  Participants may register their entry anytime between 8:30 AM and 2:30 PM.  Winners will be announced at approximately 5:00 PM.  Judges are volunteers for RBDBCC.

Teams will express their artistic flair in the sand; past creations include a breakfast meal, Funland rides, Pyramids, Dolphins, Olympic athletes and of course traditional sandcastles. Beachgoers who would rather watch than create are welcome to view the incredible creations upon their completion beginning at 3:00 PM free of charge.  

Children under 18 MUST be accompanied by an adult when registering for competition.  The Chamber encourages young participants to enter and asks that parents provide minimal assistance to youth entries.  Sculpture subject matter is left to the artists’ imagination, however the Chamber advises the avoidance of political/ controversial themes.

COMMUNITY SCUPLTURE – Darrell O’Connor will lead the building of a community sculpture through the day!  Participants can sign up to lend a hand at the contest registration tent.
