Free Sandcastle Building Lessons Every Saturday

Attention budding builders – sandcastle builders, that is. Starting June 1st, 8am-4pm, Galveston will host a free family-friendly event to help beachgoers create spectacular sandcastles with tips from the pros.

Visitors to Stewart Beach can participate in “Sandcastle Days” events to receive free sandcastle building lessons from a professional sandcastle builder. The events will take place each Saturday this summer from June 1st thru August 17th.

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.
