Now in its 7th year, this popular visual and cultural arts festival has hosted over 200,000 attendees on our #1 beach!
In only 24 sculpting hours, (spanning the five-day event), the master sculptors will create sand masterpieces, some over 10 feet tall, and transform the always beautiful Siesta Beach into an outdoor art gallery.
These renowned artists will produce spectacular, ephemeral works of art from just sand and water.
Parking will be easy for guests who chose the off-site shuttle service offered through SCAT, routes 10 & 11. Plus, the new Mobi-Mat makes it more accessible for walking.
Information regarding the 2016 event schedule, ticket options, and parking passes can be found on the website: www.siestakeycrystalclassic.com.
With some of the finest, whitest sand in the world, this beach attracts sand collectors from all over. Siesta Beach has clear, warm waters ideal for swimming. The beach is hundreds of yards wide in the shape of a crescent, due to anchoring of onshore rocks to the south. This beach is great for volleyball and other types of recreational fitness.
Our cultural scene notwithstanding, there are quite a few other reasons why people visit Siesta Key during the sumemr months. Naturally, the ability to enjoy year-round golf, tennis, fishing and boating under sunny skies comes immediately to mind.
But new studies also confirm that as many people travel here to participate in some form of wildlife viewing as to visit our top-rated beaches. As such, ecotourism is an important pillar of our lifestyle; affording residents a year-round smorgasbord of sustainable, eco-friendly activities.
Whether you hike deep into the Florida wilderness, kayak the mangrove tunnels of our barrier islands, or enjoy nature from the seat of a bike as you pedal the 11-mile, Legacy Bike Trail from Sarasota to Venice Island -or the six-mile Boca Grande Trail on Gasparilla Island—there are all sorts of vantage points from which to observe the region's amazing natural beauty. Or you can simply get your wildlife fix by visiting such in-town treasures as Mote Marine Aquarium; and the Parker Manatee Aquarium at Bradenton's South Florida Museum. The region is also home to countless environmental, state and county parks including Myakka River State Park, Florida's largest.
It is worth noting as well that many of our cultural institutions host special performances, exhibits and activities geared specifically to youth. Most conduct annual summer camps to keep long summer days filled with constructive play and learning.
In short, life in SW Florida doesn't really slow after spring has sprung. Instead it is packed with activities. These include the Sarasota Film Festival (April), the World Tarpon Fishing Tournament (May), the Sarasota Music Festival (June), the Suncoast Offshore Boat Racing Grand Prix (July), 2016 Major Beach Volley Ball National Qualifying Tournament (August), 69th Annual Labor Day Sailing Regatta (September) and The Ringling International Arts Festival (October).
