Free Sandcastle Building Lessons Held Every Saturday

Attention budding builders – sandcastle builders, that is. This summer, Galveston will host a free, family-friendly event series to help beachgoers create spectacular sandcastles with tips from the pros.

Visitors to Stewart Beach can participate in “Sandcastle Days” to receive free sandcastle building lessons from a professional sandcastle builder. The events will take place each Saturday this summer from June 2nd thru August 18th.

Each event will begin with an instructor building a sandcastle from 8-11am followed by lessons at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm. Equipment will be provided on a limited basis and participants are encouraged to bring their own sand buckets and shovels.

Registration is not required. The lessons will take place on the sand near the Stewart Beach Pavilion.

Stewart Beach is located at 201 Seawall Blvd. It is home to helicopter tours, a pavilion, volleyball courts, a children’s playground, restrooms, showers, chair and umbrella rentals, and concessions. Parking at Stewart Beach costs $15 per car during Sandcastle Days events.
