The 57th annual Cannon Beach Sandcastle Contest will be a virtual Summer of Sandcastles with the kick-off June 5, 2021. The virtual competition is intended to be a COVID-safe alternative during this time requiring physical distancing for public safety. So, start sketching your dream sand creation for 2021!
Cannon Beach has hosted this beloved event since 1964. Chamber Executive Director, James Paino explained, “The health of our community, volunteers, competitors, and attendees must come first. Rather than a one day, large-crowd event, the virtual contest goes the entire summer so more builders can safely participate.”
Volunteer and Committee Chair Debbie Nelson said “It’s fun to come across a sandcastle while walking on the beach. We have encouraged past teams to come create and build on their own through September 6th. I can’t wait to find the sandcastles and sculptures they build!”
Supporters and collectors can buy 2021 limited edition posters and other merchandise are available online and in-person at our Information Center.
In 2014, the Cannon Beach Sandcastle Contest was recognized as an Oregon Heritage Tradition by the Oregon Parks & Recreation Department, making it one of just 11 events statewide to achieve such a designation. An Oregon Heritage Tradition is an event with broad public appeal, with at least 50 years of continuous operation and that contributes to the identity of the state.
