The Sandcastle Contest

  • Atlantic Avenue Beach 169 Atlantic Avenue Amagansett, NY 11930 USA (map)

The Annual East Hampton Sandcastle Contest will take place on Saturday, August 10, 2019 at 10AM on the Atlantic Avenue Beach in Amagansett, New York.

Only indigenous materials may be used in the final sand sculpture, no power tools are allowed and you can not build in front of the Lifeguard stands or go into the dunes.

Groups are established so children are not competing against adults. The size of each group is limited to 6 so there isn’t one person competing against a group of 20. Ten dollars charged for each group and there is no charge for the spectators. This is one of our favorite days of the year and we hope to see you there!

This event is organized by the Clamshell Foundation. For more information and donations, please visit -
