One of the top 20 “Must See” seaside festivals in the world according to American Express and USA Today’s 10 Best, the U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge and Dimensional Art Exposition will return to San Diego’s downtown waterfront for 2017. This will be the sixth year that one of the world’s most important sand-sculpting competitions will be held on this built-for-the-occasion beach, with over 300 tons of sand dumped on the pier on San Diego’s Big Bay. The 6th annual edition will be open to the public Sept. 1 – 4. The Port of San Diego is again Presenting Sponsor, as the event is held on its beautiful Broadway Pier and Landing. So come and celebrate Labor Day on the Bay with us.
World’s best sculptors
Top sculptors from all over the world challenge the best in the U.S. for $60,000 in appearance and prize money, and of course, their national pride. World Masters come from places like Russia, the Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, Singapore and more, as well as all over the USA, to compete for individual honors. Many more of California’s best compete in 3-person teams. All sculptors come by invitation only.
Other fun activities
In addition to witnessing one of the most important sand sculpture competitions in the world, patrons will see and be able to buy over 1,000 one-of-a-kind works of art, enjoy live entertainment from bands paying tribute to the Beatles, Beach Boys, Dylan, Journey and other greats – even a special appearance by Elvis. They can picnic on the Bay with food and drink from over a dozen gourmet food trucks and a wine and beer garden. Their kids can play in a huge sandbox (what else?) and enjoy rides and free activities in the expanded Arts for Learning/San Diego Kids Zone, sponsored by MTS.
All can relate
Generation after generation, moms and dads have taken their kids to the beach and built castles in the sand. So though no one has to take off their shoes because this sand (300 tons of it) is on a pier, everyone can relate to the incredible sculptures that are the ultimate iteration of the art, and enjoy the many other activities that make this a family-friendly extravaganza for guests of all ages.

San Diego Bayfair 2017
9/15 – 9/17
8 AM – 4 PM
San Diego Bayfair’s World Series of Powerboat Racing – a family festival tradition for more than 40 years speeds to the finish line.
San Diego Bayfair has a long and rich tradition in Mission Bay Park. The first race was staged in 1964 thanks to the foresight of the great Unlimited hydroplane racer Bill Muncey. Muncey was the driving force behind Bayfair and getting the racecourse built to host the event.
The 2.5-mile racecourse, which was named after the late Bill Muncey, is the longest and fastest racecourse on the H1 Unlimited hydroplane circuit. Driver Dave Villwock set the World Lap Speed Record of 173.384 mph in 1999 at Bayfair. Villwock has won a record nine Bill Muncey Cups, including his first ever Unlimited hydroplane race victory on the waters of Mission Bay.
Over the years, more than 5 million people have enjoyed the races on Mission Bay. Bayfair has grown from just a hydroplane race in 1964 to an event that featured drag boats, international competitors, live music and aerial demonstrations. Boat-racing tours including Formula One tunnel boats, Grand Prix West, P1 USA, Pacific Offshore Powerboat Racing Association and various semi-professional classes have competed at Bayfair.
