The Biggest Port Aransas Event of the Year
The Texas SandFest started in 1997. Since then it has grown into an extensive 3 day long festival. Artists from around the world come to Port Aransas both as amateurs and professionals and compete each year in the competition. There are always changing themes each year but the main theme/mission stays the same: "Texas Sandfest Gives Back" Mission: To give back to the community by raising funds for local charities and scholarships for high school seniors.
The event continues to be held in the same area of the beach over the past few years. Mile Markers 10-14 experience most of the action. Island Retreat Condominims is the closest accomodations to the event. Sandcastle Codnominiums and the Aransas Princess are also within walking distance.
