Sand on Whyte Sand Carving Exhibit

Sand on Whyte is returning to Old Strathcona from July 1 to 10, 2016! Sand on Whyte is open from 10 am to 10 pm and admission is by donation.

Sand carving is a performance art, much like ice carving. Professional sand carving artists will be  creating another amazing sand carving exhibit in Old Strathcona on the CP Rail lands at the corner of Whyte Avenue and Gateway Blvd. The professional sand carving artists will also be mentoring future sand carving artists during Sand on Whyte.

Contact us at to enter a professional team or to register for the artist mentorship program.

There is so much to do in Old Strathcona this summer! Don’t miss the Blues on Whyte Block Party on July 3rd and the Whyte Avenue ArtWalk from July 8 to 10.

In 2015, 53,000 visitors enjoyed the fairy tale themed sand carving exhibit. Sand on Whyte Report 2015


About Sand on Whyte

The very first Sand on Whyte sand carving exhibit was held in Old Strathcona in 2013. Many of the ice carving artists who come to the Ice on Whyte Festival also travel the world and carve sand in the summer.
