Be amazed by the work of Canadian sand carving artists as they create sand carving magic that tells our Canada 150 story!

Sand carving is a performance art, much like ice carving. Professional sand carving artists, Peter Vogelaar and Denis Kleine from BC, will transform local quarry sand into sand carving masterpieces for you to enjoy.
A Sand Carving Boot Camp for local artists on June 23 and 24 will hone the skills of local artists as they create a signature carving for Sand on Whyte.
Contact us regarding sandbox lessons for summer daycare and camp groups.

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. Sand on Whyte is very pleased to welcome this year’s artists and we can’t wait to see their amazing work again in 2017!
