Sand & Sawdust Festival 2016
Ocean Shores, WA


June 24th-26th ~ The annual Sand & Sawdust Festival was held over the weekend. The weather was Sunny and some overcast clouds. There were a ton of people in town. The Master's and Intermediate Division was held on the beach. The Singles Division was done at different venues -- the Convention Center, Bennett's Fish Shack, and the Playtime Family Fun Center.

The crisp cedar smells permeated the air at the Woodcarving Competitions in front of the Convention Center, which always produces many pieces of art. Master Chainsaw Carvers from around the world and the United States compete for thousands of dollars in prizes. Competitions took place from 10-4 on Friday and Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday. The Awards Ceremony and Auction was held on Sunday at 2pm. You will have to wait until next year to have a chance to take home a piece of original art!

Additional activities inside and outside the Convention Center included Food and Craft Vendors.

See the Video Tour to see my video of the Sandcastle Competitions.




The W. Chance a La Mer Ave Beach Access Street was packed.
Many people packed the beach to view the sandcastles, fly kites, swim/wade in the Ocean, and to enjoy the beach.
